Question Question

Ok , maybe i didn't post the question right the first time so here it goes.

I am almost cetain that i have ibs , right after i eat something i go to the bathroom ,sometimes it is loose then other times i feel like i have to go and barely get anything out , i find my stomach has been making noises also and i don't seem to have alot of pain like others do , just at time i have a queasy feeling.
but what really bothers me is the feel like my heart is fluttering , kinda like my stomach wants to growl .
this happens in the middle of my breast and right below .......notice ppl reading my post but no respones so i kinda feel left alone with this .
I am hoping someone knows what i am talking about but i also am going to the Dr's to make sure

thank you for reading and any input would be great

Hi Tammy,

I have IBS and I get the same feeling like my heart is fluttering. It scared me at first.

For your own piece of mind go to the dr. and get checked.

Good luck

What i found is that if my esophagus gets irritated --- I'll have heart beat irregulaities, --PVCs and PACs.

I finally determined with very little Doctor's help that if your vagus nerve gets irritated it will cause your heart to beat irregular --- mine is not fluttering like atrial fibrilation. I went to 4 heart doctors thinking they could help. Two were conduction specialist--- but no help. So, I went on a diet that is adequate protein and lots of veggies with some fruit. After about 2 weeks the PVCs stopped.

The diet is basically about 30% acidic and 70% alkaline foods.

I wish you well--- Harry

Hi there,

I also have an irregular heart beat and I have a mild heart murmor. I can't really say that they are effects from IBS or not but to ease your mind just go see your doctor and express your concerns.
