: I have been having palpatations now for 2 months. I did wear a Holter Monitor which showed 80 times in a 24 hour period. This is very annoying! My heart pounds so hard I actually feel it in my throat as well as pressure in my chest area. What I am wondering, could gastrointestinal problems like the H.Pylori bacteria, chronic gastritis or an ulcer cause the palpitations??
This summer I ended up in the er due to eating gravy and biscuits! I started out with heart flutters and then very fast heartrate, then I panic which didn't help, and the doctor said it was caused all by my stomach and anxiety that I let take over me from the fear of the bad flutters. When he release me my heart was still beating between 110 to 120 and he told my hubby that my heart wouldn't slow down until my food digested, later on I had to have gallbladder surgery. I have mitra valve prolapse and my cardio did tell me that your stomach can cause your heart to act weird sometimes. Hope this info help.
