    Sounds like what I'm going through except I don't work out. You may be having a slow heart rate due to the working out. This is common in athletes. Yours was probably normal by the time you got to the doctor. I recommend a blood pressure cuff you can carry with you. You may find a low pulse after working out. Good luck!

    Hi Darren, I think you may have answered your own question. Have you had a general medical examination to rule out certain issues. In the meantime, maybe you should heed the warnings and cut back on the weights. ECG and MRI exams would eliminate anything underlying your episodes.

    Listen to your body! 

    regards and take care Pauline
