yes, our digestive system contains nerve endings that respond to heat, as well as a lot of nerve endings that respond to a lot of different conditions. Nerve endings in your stomach are constantly monitoring pH for example.

Your stomach has a lot of liquid in it that’s body temperature. Unless you drink a lot of super hot/super cold liquid very quickly, you’re not going to change the temperature inside your stomach very much
