Why Can I Sometimes Hear My Heartbeat And Feel The Pulsing
Its a mystery!: We don't know why...but we physicians hear of this frequently. To even hear your own heart beat ever is a bit odd, you must admit. The term given this is cardiac awareness. We believe sometimes its presence is due to how one lies in bed on one ear, hence facilitating auscultation. Why it is not always apparent at other times is unanswerable. The whole condition is felt a normal variant. ...Read more

When I first lay on my stomach, I feel a rush of pressure to my head, like I can hear and feel my heartbeat loudly in my head and it goes away in 2min?
Laying on stomach: This pushes venous blood back to the heart which increases volume in the left ventricle causing stretch which increases force of contraction. This results in increased blood flow in arteries and turbulence in the vessels that run by the ear. The sound is transmitted into the bones of the ear and you "hear" it. Takes time to equalize. Sound analogy - Slow moving river versus rapids. ...Read more
Sometimes when I stand up, I feel dizzy, my head feels heavy and I can hear my heartbeat in my ears and my heart skips a beat?
Not uncommon: Is this your only symptom? Are you otherwise well? How fit are you? Are you adequately hydrated? Is your blood pressure normal? A skipped beat can be common, but it probably deserves to be checked completely with an ECG. But feeling woozy right after standing, is not uncommon, but should not normally be a huge problem. I would get a good check-up by a doctor. ...Read more

In bed I can hear my heartbeat through my ear. Sometimes it is "thump-thump--thump-thump" and other times just "thump--thump." What are extra thumps?
Extra beats: it is not uncommon for a young person to have extra beats. These are beats that come from upper or lower chamber of the heart and do not go through the normal stop signals of the heart. They can be increased in number with caffeine, stress, lack of sleep. They are usually not harmful but should be documented by your MD. Usually clear when exercising. ...Read more
