Feeling your heart pounding when you lay flat is very common. Hearing it in your ears and feeling it in your Chest does not mean anything is wrong. Removing gravity from the circulation system often results in a temporary increase in blood flow to the head and can yield some heightened auditory and sensory sensations of your own heart.
