Having rapid heart beat in the night. Excessive burping and nausea. What is happening?

I wake up at 3 am every night with a rapid heart beat. I m also very gassy. I usually eat a couple tums and have to relax myself for half an hour til my heart calms down. I hate going to sleep cause this always wakes me up. I always have these vomit like burps where it feels like I m dry heaving. any thoughts on how to stop it or why it happens?

Hello and thanks for the query
Firstly may I know your age? It seems to be AF (Atrial Fibrillation) or PSVT (needs to be investigated). Get your EKG done the the time of rapid heart rate and consult your cardiologist. Only EKG is enough to get to a diagnosis. Some more history is needed like:
What kind of stress you have, Frequency and duration of episodes, any other related symptoms, Does it increases with stress or anxiety in day time, does you fall during episode?
This episode may occur due to anxiety or stress but it does't seems in your case.
Consult your cardiologist after EKG
Hope this will help you.
Best Wishes
