Hi all, 1st post here
I recently found an old stethoscope of mine and decided to give my heart a listen. Everything seemed normal, until I swallowed (be it food, saliva, or a drink).
My heart beat increased for maybe just 1 second, and then goes back to normal....
I tried an experiment where I drank a large bottle of water very quickly while listening to my heart. I noticed that my heart beat went up drastically while drinking the water (non stop), until I stopped.
Is this a normal occurrence? Is my heart beat supposed to increase when I swallow?
