I can only say I am so happy to have found this forum, I know I have IBS and GERD, but never felt the palpation's until the other day, and it scared me!! I did notice I had a lot of gurgling in my stomach but was not burping or not to be rude, passing gas..I also noticed with every gurgle i felt a palp. I do suffer from Anxiety, but I don't think the anxiety kicked in until I felt the palps. Not that I'm happy anyone else suffers from it but it does make me feel a little better to know I am not alone and crazy..lol..I read a post someone wrote about magnesium and gaviscon. Gas X also helps me. I ran to the pharmacy and purchased.. Centrum Cardio health, and magnesium. I also take zantac. Since I do take Prozac, i spoke with my pharmacist to make sure it was ok to take everything else. He mentioned palps are common with both GERD and IBS and recommended I try Oral Aloe, he said not only does it help but it does promote healing. I went to GNC and got it, it's inexpensive and the cashier said he uses it for erosion in the esophagus along with a change in diet. I got the berry flavor and it taste ok, just chill it and drink it fast!! I am willing to try anything, because as harmless as I have been told the palps are for me they are scary!! I try to understand that they come along with the IBS symptoms, like bloating, gurgling feeling. I hope I can make someone else feel a little better too!! Thank you to everyone who shares their symptoms!! If anyone can share, I would love to know if people are having the same symptoms !! Thank you!!

i have them as well, feels like my heart skips a beat
 
Its really scary when i get them at night when im just falling asleep or fully asleep, it shocks me awake and startles me, but go away as quick as they come
 
Im sure its related to reflux, im young, athletic and healthy as a horse Im told
 
 
i need to try the aloe though
 
I have good luck with chilled max strength liquid mylanta, take a nice shot of it just before you lay down, it feels like it coats my throat/esoph and settles/dilutes acid in stomach

Yes, try the aloe juice they sell it @ GNC, i know they are scary and i always felt like i was the only one with the symptoms but I have found out there are many more people than you think! I do take a shot of Gaviscon, which i believe is the same concept as Mylanta....Thank u for reading my story!
