IAmA 21 year old living with Brugada syndome (AKA Sudden Unexplained Death Syndrome) AMA
A little over a year ago I was diagnosed with a heart condition called Brugada Syndrome. Or as it is referred to: Sudden Unexplained Death Syndrome. Ask me Anything This is a condition that many of you are not aware of, and with the hopes that this may make it to the front page I am here to share my story with my fellow Redditors. To give you some insight before I tell my story, I want to give you some background to this condition. Brugada syndrome is a genetic mutation of genes in the heart that, in turn, causes a Lethal arrhythmia. It strikes with no warnings, no pre cursor, no symptoms, other than a positive EKG that shows the arrhythmia.
