During exertion, experience shortness of breath and burning in leg muscles. Observed low heart rate.
Carlos on Jul, 16, 2014:
I have the same symptoms, especially low heart rate (This happens progressively when doing exercise for long time (months)). I have been told that I possibly suffer for a carnitine deficiency and/or fatty acid oxidation disorder.
From this study (1 month ago):
The shortness of breath is happening once every week and a half or so. I've gone to the hospital emergency room twice as sometimes it continues for a couple of days and it interrupts my sleep. All the doctors keep saying that it's a panic attack, but my pulse is normal as well as my blood pressure. I"m a teacher off on summer break. I am completely relaxed, but am having trouble catching my breath right now.
From this study (4 months ago):
i am taking these medicines for proteinurea but since last 1-2 weeks i'm having trouble breathing sometimes.
