    Angry palpitations and Gerd

    Ive noticed that some of the Symptons of Gerd is Palpitations. Was wondering if anyone else was woken up by them in the early hours of the morning? I generally get woken up at about 02.00am and also get a burning chest. Does anyone know of a way to combat this problem?

    I get this too. I go to bed around 3-4am and wake up about 6am with a racing pulse and palpatations. I take Toprol for high blood pressure and notice when it starts to wear off i get them. May be a combination of the two.

    Strange! After reading your post i suddenly thought to myself medication. So i did a online check of medications i take. I noticed that Ramipril can cause you to have Fast Heart beat, so im wondering if that could be the cause, as i take one before Bedtime.

    The Aciphex and the Protonix both give me nightmares and I wake up with my heart racing. I know it's from the medication because I don't have heart problems and never had this before. It's scary though.

    Re: palpitations and Gerd

    Lately I have been having a "heavy heartbeat" not fast or fluttery. It has just been very heavy like i can feel it in my chest. I dont know if it's anxiety or some side effect of gerd but it is very scary. Again i have had 4-5 ekg's 4-5 xrays, 4-5 blood work, 4-5 urin work and an echo cardiogram and 3-4 doctors tell me my heart is fine. Well doc's it sure as hell doesnt feel fine

    Re: palpitations and Gerd

    Are you taking any of the PPI medications? I'm sure that's why I have this because I've never had a problem before and when I stopped the medication, it went away.

    Re: palpitations and Gerd

    I think I found my answer here. I don't believe is my heart so naughty. It could be Gerd. I woke up at 3:00am normally with the sick tummy. I had nightmares and woke up with the flip flop heart. How you get Rx it is "Gerd"?
    I wasn't on any medication at the moment. Thanks.

    Pika.

    Re: palpitations and Gerd

    I get palps with my GERD sometimes and it absolutely freaks me out. And that's even though I've had my heart checked out and though I've been through this before and know that they will go away when the GERD goes away. It's enough to drive you bonkers, that's for sure.

    To KJHCHEMIST
    Before you mentioned in a previous post about a supplement you were taking that helped your GERD symptoms a lot. I don't think you said what it was.I thought taking magnesium would help and just haven't taken it consistently. I'm not sure it but it might be making make me nauseous.
    I am having palps and I think I pinpointed it to the Prevacid. When I was on Nexium I didn't have palpitations but just not real great Gerd relief. Just to be sure I am going back to the cardio doc to rule out heart issues, again!
    Thanks for your help.

    Re: palpitations and Gerd

    Kelly,

    It wasn't that the supplement helped my GERD symptoms, it was that it seemed to keep my palps down to a few a day at most. It's a B-complex with anxiety herbs in it, it's supposed to help keep the cortisol levels in check.

    So that brings up another question about the relationship between GERD and anxiety. Which comes first, the chicken or the egg?

    -Karen

    Re: palpitations and Gerd

    Are these dangerous like will it cause heart attacks. Has anyone reported these to their doctor and found out any information about it. If you've been checked out and don't have heart problems then is it dangerous. I haven't been to a specialist yet but I'm planning to ask.

    Re: palpitations and Gerd

    I'm on Protonix which I've been taking for about a month and was on Aciphex for 2 months. I've had this almost for 3 months now. I notice it the most when I lay down to go to sleep at night as I'm mostly busy during the day and try not to pay attention to it. Let us know what your doctor says. Your lucky you don't have the nightmares, I hate to go to sleep at night.
