Vagus nerve supplies in many major organs like heart, lungs, stomach, palate, esophagus etc. Therefore, vague nerve damage can cause bradycardia( decreases heart rate) ,arrhythmia,  voice changes, difficulty in swallowing, gag reflex, constipation and incontinence but its damage does not cause dehydration. However, vagus nerve effect can be amplified by dehydration (though dehydration may originate due to any gastrointestinal illness through vomiting or diarrhea etc.). In addition, vagus nerve stimulation by dehydration can lead to decrease in heart rate/pressure and then fainting. Vagus nerve stimulation and blocking therapy can be two forms of treatments available for vagus nerve damage and they can be utilized as per the requirement of the case. Surgical option (vagotomy) can be kept reserved in severe cases. Hope this helps.

I had a recent ablation for afib 2 months ago.  I am concerned they may have damaged my vagus nerve during the procedure since I now have more than 5000 PVC's daily and "gastritis" started the very night of my procedure and has not subsided.  Constant belching etc. Nexium is not working at all.  How do you test for vagal nerve damage?  Should I see a neurologist? Can this be cured?
