Why could gas cause heart palpitations?

Why could gas cause heart palpitations?

The vagus nerve?: The association between GI activity (e.g. Gas/bloating, acid reflux) and palpitations exists, but we aren't sure why. It may involve the vagus nerve, which controls GI tract as well as the heart, especially the electrical properties of cardiac tissue. Alterations in vagus activity, triggered by GI feedback, may alter conduction properties in heart muscle, leading to fast or irregular heart beats.

Could having gas have anything to do with heart palpitations?

Could having gas have anything to do with heart palpitations?

It's possible: In general the two conditions are separate. However it is possible that gassy pain is actually heart pain because the heart is not getting enough oxygen. If the gas happens with exertion or emotional stress, then this would be more likely. The gassy pain and heart palpitations could then both be related to one underlying heart condition. But more info is needed to really know.

Can gas in the stomach cause heart palpitations?

Can gas in the stomach cause heart palpitations?

No: To be precise, gas in the stomach can not cause heart palpitations, but it can give the feeling like there is something happening to the heart when there is not. We frequently have patients who feel "palpitations" while wearing a heart monitor and we see no abnormalities of the heart rate or rhythm. So, the sensation can come from causes unrelated to the heart.

I've had gas in my chest on and off for over a week. Burping doesn't seem to help it and occasionally I get heart palpitations with it. Thoughts?

Exam: You must be examined, tested and diagnosed. I would also suggest an abdominal ultrasound to rule out gallbladder disease. Get an EKG and a Holter monitor.

Palpitations: In most cases of outpatient anesthesia, any preoperative issues, including palpitations, new or old, require evaluation by a physician. Patients undergoing such procedures must be on a professional OR grade monitor, but the EKG tracings do NOT allow for complete evaluation as a 12 lead would. And most dentists administering GA are NOT qualified to "read" an EKG or decide on safety in. Such cases.

My father died a few months ago. Since then, I've had some heart palpitations one or twice a day, gas, and general anxiety. Could it be gad? Should I worry about the palpitations?

Grieving heart: Sorry you lost your dad and please accept my sincere condolence. You should check these "palps" and GI symptoms with your primary care physician. They may be related to anxiety however it is better and safer to first make sure your physical health is sound. Best wishes to you.

Due to anxiety, I have been getting frequent heart palpitations where it feels like my heart flutters. Is this dangerous to my heart?

Due to anxiety, I have been getting frequent heart palpitations where it feels like my heart flutters. Is this dangerous to my heart?

Not necessarily: Palpitations are a sign that the heart is getting more stimulation from the adrenaline surges that happen in anxiety or panic attacks. Very normal physiologic response. Prolonged surges over years could affect the heart, but at 21 years of age it is very unlikely. If u feel your skipping beats or being irregular u should seek medical help by seeing a doctor.

I am having what feels like fluttering. Heart palpitations?

Get checked.: You should be evaluated with a history and physical exam. In addition an ekg and perhaps a 24hour recording (holter monitor) would be useful to characterize the cause and help to decide if any treatment is necessary. It may be helpful to avoid excess caffeine and alcohol.
