Common Questions and Answers about Omeprazole and heart palpitations

You are right about not being sure which one may be the cause but he still does not want me on them. I do use the Omeprazole and Zofran and I have a Mylanta simethicone liquid an ER doc prescribed. He wants me to try the Xifaxan again. Now have to see a Pulmonologist for the blood in sputum I just got up and am sick to my stomach and spitting up sputum. See an ENT dic today. I am wondering if that tooth infection caused all this.
Reverted back to my former cardiologist and she feels as though Acid Reflux/GERD is what is causing a majority of my symptoms and put me on Omeprazole. Recent followup and she has changed the rx to Pantoprazole, I believe it is supposed to be longer lasting. She mentioned also wanting to do another stress test as well. Personally don't want to endure more radiation as I am scanned all the time for one reason or another in trying to provide a dx for all my problems.
No lexapro, no Metoprolol, nothing but a multivitamin and omeprazole magnesium for acid reflex. I am so tired all the time and the pounding of the heart when I do even little things worries me. I feel like I could almost pass out at times. I feel weak. So the big questions is do you think it is my Anxiety acting up again or is there something new going on? With my anxiety I always worry. Any ideas I should bring up with my doctor?
I just wanted to mentioned that a little over a year ago, I was starting to have heart palpitations, where I would feel my heart pounding in my chest and I got periods of a little shortness of breath during that time I would feel my heart beats. I had an EKG and it was normal as well. I then went to wear a 24-48 hour holter monitor to record my heart rate and rhythm. It did show something.
My doc seemed amazed that the stomach could affect the heart and didnt seem to believe the specialist. Am dazed and confused and sick of worrying about my heart. I also once had a dream in which on three different occasions my heart was torn from my body. On one instance I was a Mayan sacrifice and the other I remember took place during the second world war. I was a doctor and had been caugh and my heart cut out. I cant remember the third.
Once I calmed down and got my breathing under control it seemed to subside slowly and I feel more or less normal now, but I'm wondering if this could have something to do with a combination of sleep apnea (waking up not breathing and having to inhale deeply) and some kind of heart condition (the combination of the sharp pain and subsequent rapid heart beat and palpitations).
I feel like I'm in quite a severe haze all the time, shakey and disconnected. I have palpitations regularly, and I had a holter monitor which confirmed a number of ectopic heartbeats. Not a huge amount, but I feel them strongly about 30 times a day, especially when recovering from excercise. My heart responds to excercise properly, my resting heartbeat is about 58. After excercise it seems to slow down in stages, and between each stage there's an ectopic beat.
recently ive been having more frequent heart flutters and skips with the sensation of passing out !! I have acid reflux bad I take omeprazole 40 mg I ran out of my meds and started taking over the counter omeprazole I had bad skips and sweats that caused me to go to the ER they did a stress on my heart said it was fine could there be a problem going on in my esophegous causing these heart symptoms? Help desperate for peace of mind!
3 days ago I started to feel like I was having heart palpitations which became so intense that yesterday I had a full blown panic attack & called an ambulance. Apart from my very rapid pulse & hyperventilation all my other tests (ecg, blood pressure, blood oxygen etc) were fine resulting in the panic attack diagnosis. I have since done a lot of online research & found that there may be a link between stimulation of the vagus nerve from acid reflux resulting in heart palpitations.
My doctor says the chest pains and burning sensations are probably gastric or maybe caused by anxiety. He prescribed omeprazole in July, I took 10 and saw no change although I did blame an attack of palpitations on them. I have started on Omeprazole again, for 4 days now (20 mg once a day). I see no improvement and get burning feeling on chest for long periods, its usually relieved when I lay down.
I have been to the doctors and they said they couldn't hear the murmur at present, but they think it's a heart murmur which comes and goes. I have had a test done and they said that the heart murmur is caused by a leaky heart valve, Could the pain in my chest be caused by the leaky heart valve and is it anything to worry about?
Been dealing with this problem for 13 days since I first called the ambulance with a racing heart and palpitations. By the time they FINALLY did something about what seemed like a heart attack; the panic attack I was having was settled a lot more. Don't smoke weed with this, don't drink caffeine, really, that's what I've found. Two things have helped unbelievably (haven't tried all diet remedies yet): 1. Hold your head in cold water. 2. Drink red wine. P.S.
30yr old male. 5'9", 190lbs. “Hard” palpitations for the past 6 years (normal heart pace/rhythm). They are most significant following meals. Intensity and length are directly related to size of meal, sugar/carb content, and other undetermined ingredients. Generally, if I eat a sugar rich meal, within minutes my mouth will get dry and sticky. Approximately 30 minutes later the palpitations will begin. Intensity will increase for 30-60 minutes.
I think you can get a rapid rate and constricted coronaries and can lead to massive heart attack and death. And I am not kidding.
My GP thinks I have diaphram irritation and has put me on Omeprazole once a day, and says I am suffering from benign palpitations. Will these symptoms evenually settle and should I have another 24 hour tape done?
For example, when I have a resting ECG done with my physical it always says that I have had a prior heart attack and have heart failure, but it actually turned out my heart was just super effecient at pumping because I have run distance for the past 15 years and the cardiologist said that it would be the last thing to go on me...and that it was actually much better off than an average person my age. But that can be of little comfort to us, when we are suffering from anxiety in my opinion.
basically lots and lots of symtoms that would suggest something wrong with my heart (especially the palpitations, lurching, and feeling out of breath sometimes). My questions are: 1) Does anyone think i should have heart screening tests again? (the last one i had was 2 years ago - negative, had AKG done 2 months ago - negative) 2) What should i do? thanks for listening...
Heart problems don’t run in my family, my grandfather had a bypass about 15 years ago and hes 85 and still going strong, and only 1 distant relative with a heart condition. Any help or info on what would cause these palpitations would be really beneficial to me, thank you for taking the time to read and help Many thanks ps : Anyone feel as terrible as me?
I made an appointment with a cardiologist and will get a stress test and ultrasound of the heart. However, my symptoms of today mainly consisted of being lighted head and my esophagus felt inflamed. My stomach as turning and I threw up in my mouth. From there I could taste blood in my mouth. My saliva consistently was a bit cloudy.
It is so wearing as it's been going on so long and I think I and everyone got so hooked on the idea of something wrong with the heart that these sensations – which I couldn’t exactly describe - got obscured. And indeed the symptoms were rather vague and intermittent at first, whereas now they are constantly pressing themselves on my attention.
I have CHF although my coronary arteries are clear. I had my first heart failure and was hospitalised in1981. Since then I had recovered and was even doing strenuous country walking. I was walking 10 -15 miles a week in high country. A year ago last August, I was again hospitalised and am now on a large amount of different medications for CHF. Arteries are still clear and have never had a heart attack, nor have chest pain. I am told I have moderate mitral regurgitation and severe LV function.
I have had the same symptoms of not being about the breath easily and pressure in my chest and waking up at night with fast heart beat or palpitations. I thought is was definitely heart related. Had 24 hour heart monitor which was normal. Started on anxiety meds which is helping. Have you ever tried anxiety medication? Maybe learning some techniques to reduce anxiety like breathing exercises or meditation? Hope this helps.
However, levothyroxine can cause adverse cardiovascular reactions such as palpitations and increased heart rate.
I decided to stop the omeprazole - 3 days later PVCs are back... back on the omeprazole again and the reflux and PVCs gone a few days later. I mentioned this to my GP and he was annoyed that I approach him with such a nonsensical theory - all a coincidence as far as he is concerned. I wondered if any of you have seen such a marked response on taking antacids or reflux meds- going from 20,000+ PVCs in a day to zero just by controlling acid reflux?
I also have panic attacks coupled always with pvcs. They occur simultaneously, and I have never found a preventative nor a way to prepare myself for their onset. This has been going on for about 20 years. You do not give your age, and age is a factor in heart disease, but since you have had multiple checks of your heart function, I would be inclined to believe the docs when they say your ticker is OK. If they found no evidence of blockage, there probably is none.
Now I'm waiting to see if i have a hiatal hernia which could be causing the heart palpitations i have also had for years!! I understand many people with GERD have hiatal hernias. Go see a GI DR.
If I were you I would lso aget the EKG done anyway as I have done to rule heart problems and maybe if it is negative get an 24 hour heart monitor and/or echocardiogram. But I've had my sharp pains in my chest since I was a kid and it also responds to Gas-X . But I have palpitations too and they got worse so I had the whole thing done. Better to be safe as they say.. I did end up having a benign arrhythmia but that wasn't causing the main chest pain or the stomach pain.
Since that time though I've noticed that my heartbeat feels strong. This is constant and not just episodes of palpitations. My heart doesn't race (it's around 80 bpm), I just feel the beat through my entire body and it makes me feel like i've just exercised or that I'm stressed, even though I'm definitely not. In spite of exercise, I feel like I'm shaky and weak most of the time as well. I'm always dizzy, but my neck has been out of alignment lately, so it might be from that.
Not that it applies to you, but some think that natural means benign. People with seizures and heart rhythm issues need to be careful about supplements.
