both your heart problem and bulimia status may result into irregular heart beats. detail examination/investigation may reveal whether it may worse or not.

Bulimia leads to many health problems and ultimately death. Initially, you will experience corrosion of the esophagus because of the constant acid going through it and dehydration. Once your body has no nutrition, you are basically doing to your body what a starving person has no choice but to do and are slowly killing yourself. Your systems will begin to fail. Even though you are losing weight this way, it isn't the good kind of weight. Instead of losing fat, you are losing lean muscle; the kind of weight you WANT. Please find alternative ways other than bulimia, nothing good comes of it.
