The connection between the heart, the stomach and the vagus nerve

4 rating(s) (4.25 ø)

In this video, I speak with a gastroenterologist, Dr Simon Smale who is also CEO of more than Just Medicine about how the stomach and the heart are related and how stomach issues can mimic or cause heart issues such as palpitations and chest pain.

My dr said my stomach was not emptying...he prescribed a medicine with horribly scary possible side effects so I didnt take it. So I'm concerned about the vagus nerve connection. I am having racing heart with bloated are the first ones to make the connection. I knew they were connected but my dr just didnt understand it. Thank you thank you thank you

What does the vagus nerve have to do with the stomach not emptying? I definitely have the heart rhythm/bloating issue.
