Heart palpitations and h pylori

Post by Lynny35 » Sat Apr 01, 2017 5:41 am

Hello, so I recently finished my 2week course of antibiotics for my pylori bug, about 2 weeks ago now. My stomach issues resolved, or so I thought, and also to my surprise my heart palpitations that I had struggled with also went away! Unfortunately, I am starting to get those stomach issues again and my palpitations are coming back with vengence. I am thinking I still have the pylori infection, ugh... My question is, is there a correlation between pylori and palpitations? Sometimes, I have PVCs so bad, I think I am going to have a heart attack. In fact, tonight I was playing volleyball and I could barely stand it because my heart was beating so erradically. My heart itself is fine because I had all of the testing done on it. Just curious, thanks

I dont think H. pylori has direct correlation to your heart palpitation. But perhaps the anxiety of your stomach issue causes your palpitation. It will be a good idea to do a follow up breath test in two weeks time to find out if you still have the bacteria.

if you still have gastric symptoms, perhaps you can try to take some ranitidine while waiting for the breath test.

I am having them. The heart is thumping when I lie down. Not fast, but pounding. I can feel it in my neck as well. I am unsure if this is part of H Pylori or not.
