1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not sure

I am not sure that your gerd is not related to your heart.
The question is whether the Omeprazole actually helps or not, if not, the indigestion may be really angina. Omeprazole is not commonly known to cause "irregular heart beat".

In brief: Possibly

omeprazole can cause irregular heart beats-would stop the omeprazole if ok with the doctor that prescribed it and see if irregular beats go away.
if not, the omeprazole is probably not the cause and a work up is indicated such as labs, holter monitor, echocardiogram and stress testing.
