GERD/heart palps
Jan 20, 2006
My name is Erin, and I'm 22 years old. I have been diagnosed with acid reflux disease a number of years ago, and have been taking aciphex twice a day for about 6 years. For the past four weeks, I have been experiencing heart palpitations after or while eating. I also noticed that I get bad indigestion and gas after I eat. I have had an EKG, halter monitor, ecocardiogram - all were normal, except for episodes of sinus tachycardia after eating. Anyway, I read online that people with GERD sometimes have palps. I also get palps sometimes while NOT eating, but this could still be related to my stomach. I also have chest pain in my upper chest and shoulders/neck.

I plan to call my stomach doctor to maybe change meds. Maybe the aciphex just isn't doing it's job anymore. Will probably try Nexium.

Anyway, I would just like to hear any similar stories. These palps are really starting to disrupt my life. Thanks.
