Wow, I've never heard that skipped beats/palpitations are symptoms of IBS. I have had IBS for about 10 years, and come to think of it, my stomach problems started shortly after I experienced skipped heartbeats one evening. I went to my family doctor, a cardiologist, had ekg and echogram done, heart checked out fine but no one could tell me the reason my heart skipped beats.
Anyone have more info on this???
