: : 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.This message is for the lady who ate bisquets and gravy!
I am interested to know what mitra valve prolapse is. I read with great interest about your racing heart after digesting food. My symtoms usually start after eating. The last time I had a bad episode it was in the car after swallowing a handfull of peanuts. This morning I had it in a restaurant right at the register. (was not related to the check size)! I had trouble in the past with ulcerations in the esaphogus, had several endoscopies done and some pollyps removed.I am sceduled for another endoscopy to make sure this is not the cause of the sudden racing heart.I believe there is a correlation. I also run out of breath at times while eating. Unfortunately the doctors are usually in the hallway before you can explain the onset and other circumstances which led up to the svt.I find this posting of messages extremely helpful and learn more than in the phycians office. It also seems reassuring that there is help although different things will help for different people.
Still in the diagnostic stages, Jeanne
