Gerd and Heart Palputations

Hi! Sometimes I feel as if my heart skips a beat or more like I am getting some kind of heart palputation and then get kind of light headed or dizzy for a second. When this first begins to happen, I take a deep breath and get up and just walk and it goes away instantly. I thought maybe I had a heart problem, but my doctor said I don't since I had an Echo cardiogram that was fine.

Now, I do have a lot of digestive problems with heartburn, gas and sometimes a heavy feeling on my chest or under my ribs, so is it possible that the heart symptoms I am feeling is related to digestive problems?

Re: Gerd and Heart Palputations

I think some people the reflux of acid up the esophagus iritates the vagus nerve and cause heart skips--
It has happened to me many times for months but changing to a blander diet it seems to help and I don't feel the palpatations as much??

Re: Gerd and Heart Palputations

Thanks for the reply Harry. I think I should also watch what I eat better and cut back on the soda, which probably adds to the problem. I thought I remembered reading that Gerd and heart palputations or skipping a beat could go together, but I just wanted to be sure.

Re: Gerd and Heart Palputations
