Often Bloated With Palpitations?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is generally characterized by an uncomfortable sensation that is dominant around the throat, chest, or upper stomach, namely tightness, itching, heat, pain, bloating, stinging, propping up, phlegm, nausea, and so on. However, in more severe conditions, various other complaints may also arise, including palpitations, cold sweat, weakness, dizziness, headaches, sleep disturbances, and so on. How can GERD cause the heart to beat? Many literature states that this condition occurs due to increased production of stress hormones into the blood due to the discomfort the body experiences due to GERD. In the end, this stress hormone can increase the work of the heart and sufferers can experience heart palpitations which are quite severe.
Not only because of GERD, various other conditions can also cause heart palpitations (palpitations), including:
Heart and blood vessel disorders, such as heart valve abnormalities, heart infections, hypertension, heart rhythm disorders
Disorders other than the heart and blood vessels, such as side effects of drugs (for example, asthma or decongestant drugs, excessive alcohol and caffeine consumption, thyroid gland disorders, panic attacks, anemia, drug abuse, etc.

However, if after receiving treatment from a doctor, your wife's complaint does not improve, you should check with a doctor or internal medicine specialist again. Several types of supporting examinations, such as heart records, X-rays, laboratory tests, ultrasound, and so on, may be doctors do to identify the best treatment.
At this time, you can first do the following tips so that your wife's complaints subside:
Calm his mind, prevent him from excessive sadness and anxiety
Remind him to sleep more discipline and eat more regularly, little by little but often, do not consume excessive caffeine
Help him to exercise regularly
