Hello, folks. My mother has been suffering from gerd for a long time. She has been found recently atrial arrythmias. I wonder whether these two conditions are related somehow. I would really appreciate if anyone could reply to me. I hope someone will. Thank you in advance for all your help.

Hello. GERD represents Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease. It is a condition where gastric acid enters esophagus and eats up its mucosa. There are no serious studies which would show some link between GERD and atrial arrhythmias. In past days, cutting nerve vagus was used for GERD. In this case, arrhythmias might appear. However, nowadays medications are more used for GERD. You haven’t mentioned whether your mother started treatment. I hope everything will be all right. Bye!
