    Do you need to see a GP quickly?


    Would you like to speak with a doctor by video or phone at a time that suits you?

    Our Doctor@Hand service, delivered by Doctor Care Anywhere, offers a doctor appointment by video or phone at a time that suits you.

The answer

With Brugada syndrome, you will need clearance from your doctor regarding exercise, especially if you do not have an implanted cardiac defibrillator to deal with arrhythmia’s. Also if you do get clearance from your doctor you will need to inform the gym of your condition in case of any medical issues.
