IBS/Heart Palps

I had my gallbladder removed 2 years ago. But continue to get heart palps that triggered the initial gallstone diagnosis. I do not have a heart condition as I have had numerous cardio tests. My IBS is constipation BUT when I get the heart palps they seem to come when I get an episode of "passing bile". The palps come randomly within a 2-3 day period. Once the bile is passed and the constipation returns the palps go away. Not sure if its coincidence, hormones (47 year old female) or just in my head. The palps make me feel like my heart is going to come out of my chest. I can't sit still and feel better when I move around..... I take amitiza twice dailyand milk of magnesia before bed time. I eat right. These things "help" but its not a cure.
