Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 months ago):
I have never been in very good shape. I was diagnosed about 3 months ago with afib. I have not felt like doing very much because of it. At one time I was able to walk about 1 to 1.5 miles and lost 35 lbs. doing that and cutting back on my food. Now I have gained it all back plus some and can't even walk around the block. My cerebellar ataxia causes poor balance and when I get tired it is worse. I feel like I am stuck because I need to exercise but I can't seem to get any stronger to build up my tolerance. All my medical conditions combined with the meds I have to take seem to be working against me.
From this study (6 months ago):
Itching all over. Bumpy, itchy rash on trunk worsening - not responding to hydrocortisone creams, Vanos, oral steroids (no longer taking).
