Only when i eat in a rush... I tend to not chew properly and i swallow hard. Which then leads to a racing heart and hiccups. If i eat slowly, it doesnt happen.

Do you have a narrow gullet?

I just couldn't breathe period and my heart always raced if I did so much as even get up out of my chair. I was measuring ahead though and baby was pushing on everything like foot in the lungs. I had horrible acid reflux also that hospitalized me once. Eating didn't really make it worse, but I defiently couldn't eat to much or it made breathing harder.
