Thats better information. It is possible that your carotid artery or branches are getting kinked when you turn your head that way. The sound might have a whoosh at the end of the beat. I assume some one listened to your neck/head and moved your head to the triggering position. Vessels get stiffer as we age. Great that you CT CA scan shows none. Not likely to have heart attack-ever.
