I think you are paranoid. I would go to a doctor though.

You are NOT paranoid. I have the same problem. What you have is most likely Premature Atrial Contractions (PAC's) or Premature Ventrical Contractions (PVC's) which feels like your heart stops for a second (it doesn't stop!). When you burb, some acid can come up your esophagus and as it irritates the lining of the esophagus, it stimulates the vagal nerve, which in turn stimulates the heart, making it have PAC (Most likely) or PVC (less likely). Get checked for reflux (even if you don't feel heart burn).

Okay so I m a 15 year old girl and active with running( when it s cross country season but I m off right now) and on the skinny side weighing 95 pounds being 5 2 . I get these occasional (has happened about 8 or 9 times) heart discomfort so that when I breathe out kind of deeply there s a sharp pain near the bottom of my left lung near my heart. I think it has happened once or twice when I ate too much greasy food, when I laugh way too much, when I get over excited like when I played tennis the other day it occurred, and has randomly happened when I haven t done anything. These attacks last around 30mins to about a couple of hours. The worst case was when I still had it and went to bed and couldn t sleep on my left side because every time my heart beat there was once again a sharp pain but it was gone in the morning. I m just wondering if this could turn out to be a serious problem or just random chest pains that young people get. Please don t answer if u have no clue b/c it s a waste.

Hi, i have a problem with acid reflux, it has recently ruined my holiday and i had to take a week off work once i had come back because of the reacurenses that happened, i have also just had to take today and yesterday of work because of it. I start to burp but it smells very eggy but alot more discusting and i cant do anything but lie down once i have it. It will not go untill i have been to sleep for a proper nights sleep and sometimes it carrys onto the next day. The most recent occurance i has it yesterday and i have been ok today, but i suffer with very bad cramps in my stomach until i lie down sometimes before the burping or after, but not together. It really is getting me down and i have been prescribed medication called omeprazole but i am very worried it will come back soon and possibly over christmas, as there is no guarentee this will work. I was taking laparazole and that hasnt worked. I have stopped having fizzy drinks as at first this was thought of what was making it occur but i havent had any fizzy drinks and it has still came back. Is there anything more i can do, like have a test or a scan to make sure this isnt anything more serious which my doctors are missing?

Hi there,
I have been Burping up Egg Tasting/Smelling Burps since Sunday. On Monday, I felt like I had heaps of wind, was fluffing, and burping all night. This then went away. I have recently started burping again, and it has started to taste like eggs. Is this a sign of early pregnancy?

Hey, Hope you are well. I have excessive belching which smells and tastes of Sulpher. Also black stools, and pain in lower left abdomen (which also radiates through to my back). Can you please advise of the cause of these complaints. I suspect, perhaps, a bleeding ulcer? Grateful Thanks, Davie.
