    Palpitations and Burping?

    Hi all I am hoping someone will help shed some light. From past 2 months I am
    Having issue with heavy burps and palpitations. I feel like I get a lot of burps after I eat anything and my heart beats fast and I feel it beating I feel very uneasy and when I burps couple of times I feel fine after heart
    Palpitations goes away.. all my test are clear .. cardiologist and also gastro the only thing came was I have spontaneous acid reflux but that shouldn’t cause palpitation. ? Please help if anyone else ever felt same. Could it be Vegus nerve related? Which doctor to go?

    RE: Palpitations and Burping?

    As applicable, the most common type of palpitations, premature ventricular contractions (PVCs, occurs even in many ♥-healthy individuals) or the second most common type of palpitations, premature atrial contractions (PACs), described that the heart is flip-flopping, fluttering, jumping, pausing or stopping briefly (though it's actually not doing that), pounding, skipping, thumping, or strong, hard, or forceful beats being felt in the chest, neck, throat, has various causes (cardiac and non-cardiac) or triggers.

    PVCs as well as PACs are typically harmless (benign), be it isolated (single), couplets (2-in-row), triplets (3-in-a-row) or salvos (short bursts of 3 or more in-a-row), bigeminy (occurring every other beat), trigeminy (occurring every third beat), quadrigeminy (occurring every fourth beat), etc., etc.

    Also as applicable, some individuals have reported, palpitations (PACs, PVCs), atrial fibrillation (AF), or tachyarrhythmias (tachycardia, supraventricular tachycardia/paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia) being triggered off by GERD/acid reflux/heartburn, swallowing (food or drink), gas, bloating, belching, BURPING or coughing, or after a heavy meal/on a full stomach.

    These are known as indirect causes or an "reactive-arrhythmia". This may/can also be a side effect of some foods (which includes additives and preservatives), drinks, or drugs. On the flip side, in some cases, belching, BURPING, or coughing may/can terminate/relieve/halt/stop an irregular heartbeat.
