Gas problems or heart problems

Common Questions and Answers about Gas problems or heart problems

gas

Usual symptoms of heart problems are pain in the center of the chest (meaning blocked arteries), shortness of breath (usually meaning heart valve problems), stomach problems such as belching a lot or gas, a feeling like you have the flu when you do not. Any pain that is in the chest and radiates to the neck or jaw or down the arm can be serious and are signs of a heart attack.
I have noticed that when I have gas moving around, I often feel that my heart may skip, or when I am laying down a spasm may occur near my heart with no pain but gives the feel of a slight skip. Though I have a heart murmur, I was tested and have no heart disease. Can gas cause this skiping sensation in the heart, or by pushing against the heart actually cause a skip, I heard this is posiable. If so what can I so to lesson the gas and the skipping or spasm sensation?
I just recently started babysitting for my friend and I noticed that when I have to wake up early in the mornings I get sick weather its acid and nasuea or gas pains all day. I hate feeling like that while trying to work. My boyfriend also has stomach problems and he gets real nasous and throws up acid or whatever he ate for dinner every morning right before he has to go to work and he usually gets better but some days it lasts all day. When hes off work hes fine.
Since both of you are sick - perhaps there is mold in your apartment - or a gas leak. Either one would make both of you sick... please call the gas company to start with - they usually don't charge anything to check your stove, heater, etc. - If it's mold it could be behind the wall in the bathroom or behind the kitchen sink. My stomach problems were so bad I had surgery - I don't recommend that right now... Prilosec is a proton pump inhibitor and works differently than Pepcid.
so it started with my preassure fluctuating, when i went to the doctor he said it was gas, so he gave some gas tabs and that irregular heart beat stopped, but the pounding started, i even had a holter for 24hr installed, and nothing was seen, i am now taking some magnisum to see if that will help, i am also going to take some more tests to make sure is not a heart problem. Can anyone assist?
I saw another post about atrial fibrillation and stomach gas possible association or connection. I too have the same thing so it may not be all in your head if your suspect this to be the case. Most dr.'s think your crazy or never heard of this when you even suggest it. Thats whats wrong with most dr's atleast in my experience in that they don't think outside the box enough possibly because this is what they learned.
Are your having diahrrea? The bloating is probably gas, which is causing the pressure in your chest, or maybe heartburn or both. Activated charcoal capsules from the health food store can help with the pressure/bloated feeling from the gas, as well as with loose stools. Take them 2 hrs before or after meds or vitamins. You feel better after you poop because all that pressure is finally being released.
all of the sudden i will feel like gas or something.. I notice it happens more when i eat snacks at night laying down.. than when i go to sleep that night, i can't explain it.. ill feel a little bloated .. and than ill start feeling a nervous feeling i can't control... ill start sweating. my heart speeds up, than it goes into like a drum beat really fast mode.. soon as that happens lately for some reason i calm myself down pretty fast.. and than the really fast heart rate stops..
I've been trying to eat a fairly balanced diet. Can you tell me what this might be? I don't know whether it's cardiac or GI or both....or just in my head....I also worry about EBV flare up since I had a bad bout of mono four years ago with liver and spleen inflammation that I had to take prednisone for. Is that possible?
They may recommend a change in diet and then using over the counter acid reducers, like prilosec or nexium or xantac or pepcid. First, find out which foods give you the worst problems. Beer, pizza, spicy foods, caffeine - these can trigger the acid in your tummy. Slow down on them or take antacids prior to eating/drinking them. Some immediate tips: Don't eat 2 hours before laying down. Don't over eat. Eat slowly and chew thoroughly.
Thanks Lisa, I took a look. I didn't read the complete thread but what I have read has "opened" my eyes that I may need to do something to open my nasal passages and closing my mouth. I may try the breath right strips or nose cones, as well as some of the other practices... maybe even go see an nose and throat specialist. Why not, I'm now dependent on almost all other medical specialists ;( I wonder if the mouth breathing problem is contributing to my trouble dream problems.
I have matched some of my symptoms to heart disease or cystic fibrosis but i thought if it was CF i would be coughing up a great deal of phlegm and would have been suffering from birth i have no idea whats wrong with me and the doctors cant either but breathing difficulties, heart palpitations, dry cough, and getting out of breath from running short distances. Thank you.
When I went home a month ago went to the ER with bad left side pain and they did and X-Ray and it showed a big gas pocket in the left side also it showed I was constipated, but I go the bathroon 5-6 times a day. So they gave me some liquid stuff to drink to clean me out. Well I was going #2 and it was green. I was still having problems and the dr said to try miralax. Which I am now taking. Since I have been back I have been having horrible acid reflux it feels like food is stuck in my throat.
Were Liver enzymes good or bad? Has she been on the antibiotics for awhile with the urinary problems? They can also damage the liver. However, again, there are products available to strenghten the liver and filter toxins out no matter what the cause. I'm just not happy with your vets response.......Please know, that I will keep Caylee and you and your husband in my prayers. I hope everything works out...Please, keep us posted.....
The symptoms could be due to an inflammatory bowel condition (IBS, Crohn’s, celiac or food intolerance), severe acidity with H pylori infection, liver, gall bladder or pancreatic dysfunction or due to gastric reflux. Please consult a GI doctor to rule out these causes one by one. Hope this helps. Take care!
For about 10 years I've been having digestive problems which cause a high production of gas in my stomach and intestines. I've also been experiencing heart palpitations or flutters that are like extra beats that sometimes occur every other beat. The palps mostly went away years ago but recently came back. I know that it's caused by my digestive problem because like many others I've gone to hospital with symtoms and had just about every test done and the results are clean on everything.
Also have burning just below the sternum. I went to urgent care and they thought it was gastritis or possible ulcer. Went to GP and they took blood. Last night I had a two dry heaves so I went to the emergency room. Had an ekg, chest x-ray and blood work. Also had echo for liver, pancreas, kidneys, gallbladder etc. Everything was negative. Scheduled for an upper GI the 20th. I don't feel like eating much but when I do I hold it down.
He has seen several doctors-the pulmonologist says it could be that since his diaphram and intestines are now moved up into his chest area on the right side that this is probably the pain-the digestive doctor says it could just be acid reflux developed by all of the tubes from surgery-the cardiologist says he doesn't want to go there because no matter what no one is going to open him back up-But he is in pain and can't stand to eat and is afraid that the aneurism is growing again -its been two
The vast majority of people who have GURD take a proton pump inhibitor such as Prilosec or Nexium and have very few problems, although it is probably a pill you will take for a long time. Trust your doctor or get a new one.
this helps but takes a few mins to work. trapped gas and gas build up can mock or fake heart attack symptoms - as iv been in the ER twice thinking im having a heart attack ! and it was trapped gas. most of my problems are caused by Medications ( side effects ) for h.b.p and Most Doctors , dont want to hear about those things. best to try Gas X pills and a good anti acid twice a day. water is very good to drink as it helps flushing out the body .
I went to the ER while I was having these symptoms and the doc said my heart was skipping beats about every 1 in 6 but it is nothing I should worry about as long as they don't skip every other beat or 1 in 2. My questions is has anyone else experience heart palpitations caused by gas or GERD? Is the nerve that is attached to the esophagus the same that controls the hearts electrical activity? I'm looking for as much information on this subject as I can find. Thanks in advance.

However, in the majority of instances, childhood behavior problems occur on the normal spectrum and are not indicative of serious mental or emotional problems. Now, does the fact that many behavior problems are considered normal indicate that they should be ignored, that parents should do nothing to address them? By no means. It is important to manage childhood behavioral problems in a systematic manner. What is meant by ‘systematic’?
How can you lower gas, or the skipped heart beats?
My heart tends to skip beats occasionally...PVC-type episodes. It seems to be very much related to my stomach problems. When I have gas or acidy stomach, my stomach distends a bit and this seems to cause the palpitations. It feels as if the stomach is pressing on the heart and making it beat irregular. Am I crazy? Or is there some type of relationship between stomach distress and heart palpitations?
