Re: dose gas make your heart rate beat?

your involuntary actions (such as heartbeat, breathing, and digestion) are controlled by something called your vagus nerve...you can have stomach, esphophgeal spasms, or gas pressure that can stimulate this nerve and cause the heart to beat rapidly or even in atrial fibulation.

There are a whole host of conditions out there, but one specifically related to gas pressure and heart is also known as roemheld syndrome (google it)...in that condition, the gas pushes on the diaphram muscle and disloges the heart causing problems...I am tracking down a similar problem and have experienced all this.
