Vagus Nerve Heart Palpitations
I Had a sleep study last night with CPAP and have been experiencing heart palpitations most of the day. Can initial CPAP cause Vagus nerve irritation?
Typically no: That does not usually happen. It can trigger changes in your level of carbon dioxide since with apnea you tend to retain more and CPAP will force you to blow that out. If this is persistent go get an EKG. Heart arrhythmia is common in apnea including heart block, PVCs and atrial fibrillation. Some can be dangerous. ...Read moreGet help now ›

Heart as an organ: The heart is a sensitive organ and as such likes a certain mileu. Acid reflux (heart burn) is not a comfortable condition with acid in an otherwise alkaline mileu (esophagus), hence can cause GI pain and/or masquerade as chest pain. This perturbs the heart and has been associated with atrial fibrillation and/or simple extra beats. This is the explanation that is believed presently. ...Read moreGet help now ›
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. ...Read moreGet help now ›
Rearended on tues. Have whiplash. Thurs. Had severe heart palpitations/almost fainted while sitting, twice.. Doc says I have low BP - is this related?

You many need to see an osteopathic physician who does manual treatments. ...Read moreGet help now ›
I'm weening myself off Prevacid with the help of a Betaine/Pepsin HCL pill every morning. It helps but I now have heart palpitations. Side effect?
Betaine HCL/pepsin: There are no reported cases on palpitations but theoretically the pepsin/HCL combo could have negative vagal feedback ( vagus stimulation produces pepsin on our stomach). The vagus nerve via parasympathetic stmulation slows the heart and if it is inhibited there could be increase heart rate. You could try stopping the meds and seeing if palpitations stop. Check B6, folate ,B12 .F/U with doc. ...Read moreGet help now ›
