HR awareness: Often when lying down to go to bed the environment around you is quiet and calm and you have what we call heart rate awareness. This means that you can hear it in your ears, feel it in your chest or other parts of your body, like your fingertips. If you experience pain along with feeling your pulse, you might consider having this further evaluated.

Yes.: It just means that you have good circulation to the tips of your fingers. That's a good thing. :).
