Take your pulse: Do you mean it's beating too slowly? Take your pulse in the morning on your neck or your wrist (thumb side). If the rate is at least 55 per minute, you're probably fine. When people complain about heartbeats it's usually because they are too loud. Silent is ok. It's supposed to be working quietly there "under the hood" for you.
