    Last month I had a bad fainting spell in the middle of the night for no reason. I woke up feeling very strange, almost as if I was fading away. I fainted in the living room and my parents struggled to find my pulse. My mother rushed me to the hospital where the ER nurse told me I appeared to have a brugada on my EKG. The cardiologists I saw later, told me it was just vasovegal syncope. I’ve had all the signs and symptoms of it. I’ve even had multiple people die suddenly from cardiac arrest. Any advice? Feel free to email me at tylerhmixon@gmail.com I’m a 21 year old male. My sister has a pacemaker for total heart block and has had one since the age of 5.

    My 24yrs old son was recently diagnosed with Brugada . He has type 1 and
    he has the gene . He is asymptomatic . I don’t know if he needs an ICD. We saw 2 cardiologist (EPS) ; they don’t know what to do . One said he should forget about it, and just move on with his life, and do something if he. He isn’t an advocate for the ICD because of the problems that can be associated with it. The second one and his colleague is leaving it up to us. We don’t know what to do . My husband died from heart disease at age 34 that was is 1990.The doctors are now thinking it may have been brugada , Right now I am a crazy person ; i don’t know what to do. I was looking on the internet and saw your information .
    Thank you

      Hi Keitha. I’m not a doctor but I would absolutely get an ICD. Type 1, positive genetics and his father died at 34? That is very high risk. I suggest you get a third opinion. You can email Dr Brugada as well…ramon@brugada.org. I don’t don’t think it’s acceptable at this point that he just go on living pretending he doesn’t have it. That is very dangerous. Please see another doctor. Yes ICDs have problems associated with them but they can save his life.
