I am experiencing shortness of breath (time frame: gradual onset) (severity: moderate) (worsened by: exercise or physical activity) abnormal echo 3 years ago with LVH, elevated RVSP, now ekg & stress test show RAE but current echo normal?

In brief: Improved echo

Your improved left ventricular enlargement suggests that there may have been improvement in systemic hypertension or a viral cardiomyopathy, for example.
You didn't mention it the ejection fraction was reduced at that time which could have explained the shortness of breath and pulmonary hypertension. Because you're still experiencing dyspnea, maybe a consultation with a pulmonologist is indicated
