Sorry to bing this issue up again but I would really like to hear from anyone who also suffers from GERD/Acid reflux and is taking PPIs. Whilst a link has been suggested between reflux and AF, I can't find much reliable information on the link between PPIs and AF. In my case I take 80mg Pantoprazole and the NHS site on Pantoprazole states it can cause 'irregular heartbeats'.
I have just been diagnosed with Paroxysmal AF and what concerns me is that if the PPIs can cause irregular heartbeat then it would seem logical it may well be a trigger on a far too regular basis for episodes of AF. (Whist at the moment I have regular heartbeats, I do have lots of ectopic beats)
Has anyone had/having experiences of the above and how do they handle it.
Lots of good wishes to everyone.
