Nearly every time I eat, I get air in my stomach and shortly after, my heart beats irregular.  If I can make myself belch by pressing on my upper abdomen it eventually goes away.  I have always had trouble belching but the feeling of my heart beating abnormal scares me.  This has been going on for nearly 1 1/2 yrs.  It's not that I imagine my heart beating this way, I can put my hand on my chest or neck and feel it skip beats or flutter around.  Any response to this would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much.  Angela
I get this too and the only time I get the palpatations is when my stomach is messed up. It must have some thing to do with that vagus nerve getting irritated, just my opinion I am no DR. Doesn't this nerve go to the heart and stomach? What do you think Doc?  Laurie
