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 (3 weeks ago):
I have gained excessive amount of weight. My body hurts as an effect of it. I'm miserable!
From this study (3 weeks ago):
While at a conference, I experienced bradycardia and passed out. I went to the ER and all tests run (EKG, labs, CT Scan) were all normal. I am worried that it will happen again. The Estradol/Norethindrone Acetate is the only drug I am currently taking. I have no chronic illnesses.
