I ate a big meal, and went next door to my folk's house. Mom has a new blood pressure checking machine, and insisted on taking my blood pressure, which was perfect - but I was alarmed at my pulse rate. I hadn't been awake long, and had just ate a big meal, so I thought that it should have been low. Does eating affect a person's pulse? In other words, should a person's pulse be higher or lower just after they'd ate a sizable meal?
