Clinical Investigation

Brenda is a second-year college student training to make the swim team. In the early stages of her training, she experienced great fatigue following a workout, and she found herself gasping and panting for air more than her teammates did. Her coach suggested that she eat less protein and more carbohydrates than was her habit, and that she train more gradually. She also complained of pain in her arms and shoulders that began with her training. Following a particularly intense workout, she experienced severe pain in her left pectoral region and sought medical aid.

What might be responsible for Brenda's symptoms?
