Pounding heart

I have heart pounding mostly after eating. Lots of burping even when I haven't eaten in hours. Chewing gum helps a little bit with it. Tried everything from Prilosec to HCl to Estrogen gel. Tried bland diets and normal. Nothing works for more than a few days....EKGs normal. Holter monitor says nothing special wrong. Could it be anxiety? Could it be Barrets? Does that cause heart pounding?

Gerd causes my heart to beat fast. (It affects my breathing and causes my food to get stuck when it gets really bad.) My cardiologist told me (after many heart tests turned out normal and I was finally diagnosed with gerd) that you have nodes in your esophagus and when your esophagus gets inflamed it can trigger your heart to beat faster. Have you stayed on the Prilosec for a while? The first time I took it it took about 2 months for all my symptoms to go away. I can't overeat or gain weight because it all gets worse. Sleeping on my left side helps and not eating to close to bedtime helps. Also, be sure to take the prilosec at least 30 minutes before eating (an hour before works best for me) and give it a few months to work. It's very surprising what all Gerd causes your body to go through. :) I hope this helps.
