Have Syncope Episodes, Palpitations. Family History Of Sudden Death. Do I Need To See Doctor?

i am a 25 yr old healthy athletic male. I have had 2 syncope episodes in the last 7 years....have been told by 1 ER doc that i have Brugada syndrome...to then be told by a cardiologist that in the cardiac world my EKG is within the normal realm... I periodically have palpitations. I have a paternal family history of sudden death in several family members. my question is how can one dr see something and another dr not?? should i be worried also, 2x ER docs have asked me if i have ever seen a cardiologist, so obviously something on my ekg does not look right
