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.
