Once in awhile I am cursed with a quick feeling in my stomach right in the soft area below the breast bone, that is quick & with a little pressure that then goes into my heart beating about 120-130 BPM.
I have no pain or trouble breathing when this happens & when I take 2-3 gulps of Mylanta or Pepto, it subsides and all goes away. I have had this happen after bending over, turning just my head to one side, laying on my right side, turning at my waist & just sitting. I also have had it awaken me while sleeping & usually in the middle of an emotional dream when it happens. (Crying or laughing in my dream)
I have a 48 hour holter monitor,EKG,ECHO,stress test & several images of the heart done in March of 2009 & ALL was normal. Back in 1995 I was told I had a MVP & it was nothing, but the last tests said I have a normal,healthy heart.
So...my question is...can Acid Reflux cause the symptoms I have described?
I have heartburn once in a while, but have occasional episodes of indigestion,gas,& food squirt up in the back of my mouth.
But again...no pain, just the discomfort of the heart racing, because I don't like it & it makes me nervous.
