October 2010 I went through emergency with symptoms of my chest vibrating/quivering. I was treated and an ICD (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator) was implanted, and after several tests including genetic testing I was diagnosed with Brugada syndrome. I have had 3 episodes of my ICD firing, it can be traumatic but lifesaving.
