Hello,
   I'm new here.  I tend to have strange symptoms that don't always fit the textbook description.  I swear that I have irregular heartbeats from my GERD.   It seems like when I eat or drink things that irritate my esophogus, I begin having irregular heartbeats too.   I wonder if there is a nerve that runs along our esophoguses, that somehow effects our hearts?   Has anyone else noticed irregular heartbeats when their GERD is flaring up?  Thanks.

yes i have had a racing heartbeat when i have acid reflux.  the dr i saw said that if the esophogus is close to your heart, the reflux can cause your esophogus to rub against your heart and cause symptoms.
