What Causes Indigestion Followed By Rapid Heart Rate?

I was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse in the 70s. I had frequent episodes of Rapid Heart Beat until the early 80s and a Cardiologist prescribed Corgard (40 MG) per day. After that my Rapid part Beat episodes seldom happened. However within the past year, I have noticed indigestion often and it seems the indigestion triggers the rapid heart beat that I am beginning to experience more and more often. Does indigestion contribute the the rapid heart beat?
