Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me if acid reflux can cause heart palpitations?
Hi there, Kathy --
I know this is a very old question, but I did want someone from our staff to answer you! I'm not a doctor, but according to members of our community, yes, acid reflux (or any type of gastric illness) can trigger your nervous system to act as if your body is under stress or panic, hence the high heart rate. They suggest getting checked by your doctor to rule out any cardiac involvement in these symptoms.
I hope this helps! Here are some links about acid reflux that might be useful to you:
