You : You may be hearing your blood flow in your ears. This may be a benign condition, or could be the result of something more serious such as hypertension, anemia, or even high cholesterol. Your post states you are "real healthy" how did you come to that conclusion? Have you had a physical recently by a medical professional? If not then you should have one right away. Good luck.

Tinnitus : Dural jugular tinnitus would typically cause such symptoms when horizontal. Would suggest starting with a good ENT exam.
