Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

If you have reflux, it is possible for the vagus nerve to be involved and yes that can cause issues with palps and breathing issues...DO see your Dr and modify your diet and lifestyle to help calm these issues down. Look to your families medical history to make sure there is nothing heart related going on.

Do post updates on your progress.
