A 34-year-old male asked:

Hi, since a week ago, i noticed that i can hear a beat sound (like a fast heart rate) when i am in bed with my ear on the pillow. seems to be a faster beat than my heart rate and i stop hearing it as soon as i change the position of my head. thank?

What you experienced is normal. If it bothers you, keep your ear off the pillow.
