What causes irregular heart beat in a person with GERD?
Cardiac tests advised to rule out heart problems first...
You are reporting to be suffering of GERD for several months now. Sometimes, GERD is associated with such weird sensations in heart as you felt them (we call them palpitations).
If I was your caring doctor, I want to make sure your heart is ok through the following cardiac tests:
- holter monitoring
If everything is ok, then, GERD or stress might be the cause.
Hope it answered to your query!
Then,your symptoms are due to GERD
Hi back XXXXXXX
If the cardiac tests resulted negative, then, your symptoms are due to GERD.
To my opinion, you should:
- be careful with foods/drinks you consume
- take medications to treat GERD problems like PPIs, antacids
Let me know if you have further queries!
