Could a-fib be triggered by belching?

My husband has been in a-fib on several occasions in the last month; right now he's in sinus-rythym. He also is having constant belching all day & night. Could the a-fib be triggered by the belching? His gall bladder was taken out 5 years ago. He was told he could still have symptoms. He has been watching what he eats, and still has the belching. He is also taking prilosec each morning, which does no good. Is any of this related to heart disease, which he has?

Hello,

Belching does not lead to atrial fibrillation. Consult a cardiologist and get evaluated. A detailed evaluation is required.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
