Brief Answer: Heart beat&stomach bounce causes... Detailed Answer: Hi, The bounce of your stomach could be a result of : - foods you eat (that cause excessive gas to your GI tract) - medications you take - if you eat too rapidly (allowing too much gas inhaled while eating) - possible GERD (reflux) or gastritis When the stomach gets bounced (distended), it might press the nearby organs, (diaphragm) which might cause pressure to heart too. Other causes for high heart beat: - high blood pressure - eating foods high in calories - stimulants (cafein, energetic drinks, alcohol,etc.) - stress - heart disease I recommend to get checked by a cardiologist to exclude heart problems and to run the following examinations: - ECG - cardian Echo - Holter monitoring - measure thyroid hormone levels in blood If everything ok with your heart, then consult GI specialist.
