: 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??

I have heard it's possible. I would hope that a cardiologist could narrow the possibilities down though. Twenty-four hours seems like a long time for untolerable food to past through the stomach. My palpitations occur when I'm stressed or have caffeine. If I get stressed about the palpitations then the episodes last longer. I also take a calcium blocker.
