Does GERD causes Heart Palpitations (my heart is pumping fast when I'm active but slows down when I lay on my bed but still pumping alittle hard)?

Yes it can. Palpitations is the word patient use to describe a fluttering sensation in the chest caused by skipped heart beats or rapid heartbeats. Patients with no heart disease can often experience palpitations. Sometimes they are brought on by anxiety, fatigue, caffeine and cough and cold medicines.Beta blockers are sometimes prescribed if the palpitations are annoying or very frequent. SEE
No. GERD can cause GI upset but does not generally cause the heart rate to increase and slow. That can happen with anxiety, so slowing down breathing is helpful. If it persists, he can see an MD. Dr. Ivy Fisher, a pedi MD, hello!
