Tachycardia when there is gas in my stomach

I am a 29 years old male and whenever there is too much gas in my stomach, my heart rate goes up to 180-190 or sometimes over 200. This also happens when I jump from a place, sleep on my face or whenever I have a digestion problem. Farting, belching, kneeling down, drinking mineral water and sometimes vomiting help and slow down my heart. I went to a cardiologist and he diagnosed me with tachycardia. He didn't pay attention when I was telling him about my gas problem and he didn't give me any advice. What should I do and how can I avoid tachycardia?


This discussion is related to arythmias  from stress and smoking at 31.

Sounds like a HR of 200 is not uncommon.  If that's the case I'd expect the doctor to prescribe some medication, my thinking a Beta Blocker.   I suggest talking with your doctor about doing something.  Most of us can take short periods of a resting HR over 100, but up in the neighborhood of 200, I'd say no, it needs treatment.

Hey, hows the stomach?

I get high heartrate too after eating. (110-120 at rest)
If i move after eating, the heart rate goes so high it becomes very uncomfortable
to even walk. (160 during walk)

I know "Umeboshi" works against bloated stomache,
but i haven't been able to afford any. Don't underestimate the stuff,
it really works and u need very little. A half of such a berry or perhaps even just a tiny slice,
will be enough. A macrobiotic cook once prepared it for me as a medicine.

Also, i want to know the cause of my problem.
I will try to find and treat the cause.

I know using umeboshi and having several small meals, instead of 3 big meals,
will help. Chewing really well will help too. But i'm not sure if it will be enough to allow
the cause of the problem to heal. It depends on what it is.

In my case, i'm thinking of an irritated stomache or perhaps even a hiatal hernia.
Do you have a diagnosis yet?

My stomach is alot better after I started drinking mineral water and walking 20 mins after the meals. Thanks for asking. Another cardiologist said the same things that you wrote. He told me to have small meals instead of filling up the stomach and also write down all the food that produce gas in my stomach. And also chew very well. That way you can avoid the gas. Black and red pepper, heavy oils, beans, garlic and onions make me very bad. I dont eat them anymore. What I have figured out is that this is not a heart problem, this is more like a stomach problem. When there is no food in my stomach, I dont have this problem. I can even run for many kilometers. I will visit a gastroenterologist soon and will let you know what he says

I have had this problem for decades. PVCs, hypertension, tacycardia, skipped beats and lightheadedness. It took me ages to relate it to GI and gas. It happens mainly after eating and is instantly relieved by belching. After years of researching everything from vagus nerve tone to PH and the likes, i came accross a known syndrome that im surprised doctors dont even know about. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roemheld_syndrome
