Increased Heart Rate & Burping

The wide range of medical information available online has made it easy for you to take various conditions and symptoms and determine exactly what's wrong in your body. This is true for people with an elevated heart rate and episodes of burping, which have a minor relationship through shared risk factors. Even so, it's recommended you consult a doctor to confirm whatever conclusions you make on your own.

Burping Symptoms

Burping is the product of gas developing in the stomach due to chemical processes that break down foods and release gaseous byproducts. Because of this, you may notice indigestion in your stomach or abdominal pains caused by the gases expanding in your stomach. You may also feel the gas in your esophagus before burping and expelling the gas.

Increased Heart Rate Symptoms

A heart rate that increases should be noticeable when you sit or stand at points where you should have a resting heart rate. The heart may feel as if it's fluttering or hyperactive, and you may become lightheaded, dizzy or suffer from a shortness of breath. In more severe instances, chest pains are possible, and fainting may occur.

Risks

Burping doesn't feature any long-term health risks. The most serious risks associated with this condition is abdominal discomfort and social embarrassment due to the gasiness. An irregular heartbeat, on the other hand, can have many negative consequences, including frequent fainting spells, heart failure, blood clots, and even sudden death, according to MayoClinic.com.

Relationship

The National Institutes of Health and MayoClinic.com each name smoking as an influencing factor that increases the chances of developing gasiness and burping as well as an increased heart rate, respectively. Stress and anxiety can also increase your chances of developing burping, and these can cause short-term increases in your heart rate -- although you aren't likely to experience any long-term increase in heart rate due to these influences.

Considerations

If you're unable to determine the cause of your increased heart rate or your burping, it's recommended you consult a doctor. In some cases there may be underlying factors affecting your symptoms and physical well-being, and it can take a professional's evaluation to determine what's wrong. Although burping is a minor condition that usually requires no medical treatment, an increased heart rate should be taken seriously. Consult a doctor to find out what the cause might be, as well as the course of action.
