Bolsonaro has been admitted to hospital several times since being stabbed in the abdomen during his 2018 presidential campaign.
In his tweet, the president said he had started feeling unwell on Sunday afternoon after lunch. He was flown from the southern state of Santa Catarina, where he was vacationing, to the Vila Nova Star hospital in São Paulo.
Television images showed the president walking down the stairs of the presidential plane after landing in the early hours of Monday.
