Ususally none: Unless it is severe there are usually no long term consequences. If it is very severe, you could get dizzy or pass out.

Fatigue: And decreased energy. Syncope in highly advanced cases where significant pauses are present. But if asymptomatic there may be no long term adverse effects.

Bradycardia: None . In fact there is good evidence that individuals with a slow heart rate live longer.

Unclear: Not sure what you are asking. "end stage bradycardia" is a symptom not a primary diagnosis in otherwise healthy adults, childrens or infants.
