Hi.. Sudden changes in the heart rate can occur during emotional status.. It is can be slowed by a vagal reflex which happen during a valsalva maneuvre.. Examples of valsalva maneuvre are swallowing, blowing into your mouth, while straining while passing stools and so on.. That probably explains your symptoms.. These changes are normal phenomena..
