Has anyone else experienced these symptoms after eating?

I experience increased heart rate, abdominal fullness and sometimes become a little short of breath and anxious shortly after eating. Even more concerning is rapid heart rate (up to 150-160 bpm) that accompanies bowel movements or even with sudden urge to have a bowel movement. I’ve had a normal cardiac work up and doctor doesn’t suspect POTS. Does anyone else have a similar experience?
