extrasystoles for about two years now

Hello all!

I've had extrasystoles for about two years now but they were not looking so serious to me until a few months ago when I realised that they are beginning to happen while I'm eating, and now I have 5-6 extrasystoles after I swallow anything. Literaly, every bite of food going down my throat gives me a few irregular heart beats, and it's very scary and frustrating.

Anyboda experiencing these symptoms?

The one and only good explanation I could find about this online was the irritation of a nerve called VAGUS NERVE.

If I got it right, it's a nerve that goes from the brain all the way down to the bowels, and on it's way it also has branches connecting it to the lungs, heart and stomach. And if something in the stomach or the bowels irritates it (that "something" is in MOST cases pressure), it messes with the heart beat.

So, if this is indeed what bothers us, all that is left to do is to find the trigger that sets the vagus nerve in action, and as I said it before, it is in most cases pressure that stomach produces on the nerve - but can be a whole set of other triggers

Please share your opinions on this

P.s: Live long and healthy
