One symptom I've been really confused about which has got worse for me personally over the last few months is the feelings of palpitations - fast heartbeat, feeling of skipping a beat, feeling of brief pounding in the chest - after eating or even drinking just small amounts.
The sensation is often accompanied by a small amount of pain in or around the chest area and sometimes nausea. I'm told this is neither a heart problem nor a acid reflux problem so I'm at a loss as to what could be causing it.
In summary, I have the feeling of heart palpitations after eating or drinking, even small amounts. That could be fast heartbeat or the feeling of missing a beat. This is often accompanied with mild pain down the centre of the chest or off slightly to the upper right rib.
Has anyone experienced this before with IBS/D?
