Probably not. But some of the same things that cause reflux also trigger palpitations. (e.g. caffeine, chocolate, alcohol) . Harvard Health education has a good article called "Skipping a Beat–the surprise of Heart Palptations".

No, esophageal issues can be triggers of arrhythmia – of course, not in everyone. .In some people, acid reflux triggers exaggerated firing of the esophageal-cardiac reflex, causing palpitations and sometimes may be linked to atrial fibrillation. https://academic.oup.com/europace/article/19/1/16/2952312
