Stimulants


Stimulants increase the heart rate and make the heart more irritable and prone to irregular rhythms that would be perceived as palpitations. In addition to increasing the heart rate, some increase the strenght of the hear beat resulting in more blood being pumped that may cause a murmur, even in the absence of a heart defect. These stimulant may be ingested substances or internally produced.

Lots of things


We have about 100,000 heart beats / day. It is typically to have a few dozen to few hundred extra / skipped beats, just by the law of averages. There are lots of abnormal conditions, however, that can cause irregularity above that normal range. If you are experiencing this routinely, see your cardiologist for a full evaluation.

Atrial fibrillation


Afib is a likely cause. Congestive heart failure, heart block which might need a pacemaker and coronary artery blockages are also concerns. He needs to see a doctor and get an EKG and poss some other tests as well.

Is there a difference between an irregular pulse & an irregular heart rate?

 Atrial fibrillation Chest Heart Fibrillation Rhythm Heart rate Cardiac Irregular heartbeat

No, technically yes


They both indicate an irregularity of your heart's rhythm. If you listen at your chest, you actually hear the heart beats. If you check a peripheral pulse, you're feeling the momentary arterial bulge that results from the heart beat. Special case: in atrial fibrillation, the pulse rate will always be "slower" than the HR because some beats aren't transmitted.

A low and irregular heart rate of 41 would often be due to atrial fibrillation with high degree AV block. Hypothyroidism would be a common cause of such a problem.

Not likely.


In medicine you can never say never. However, it is highly unlikely that IBS will lead to any heart irregularities. Common symptoms include abdominal crampy pain, constipation, and or diarrhea. None of these symptoms will affect your electrolytes which could lead to heart abnomalities or directly affect the heart in any way.
