Why Does Seeing Someone Make My Heart Skip
Yes: Technically it may be called arrhythmia but it is very common. It is normal to have at least five extra beats per minute. Just to make sure you don't have anything else i would get an EKG and consider a holter monitor but sometimes simply by listening your heart a physician may diagnose extra beats ( PVC or apc) or atrial or other arrhythmias that may require treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Increased blood flow: Respiratory activity influences venous return to the heart. Briefly, increasing the rate and depth of respiration promotes venous return and therefore enhances cardiac output. Non-typical respiratory activity such as being on positive pressure ventilation or doing a forced expiration against a closed glottis (valsalva maneuver) impedes and therefore reduces venous return and cardiac output. ...Read more

Some thoughts...: It depends on if you're really hearing your own heartbeat, or if you're hearing a "whooshing" sound in one of your ears that is in sync with your heartbeat. Feeling and heartbeat can depend on what position you are in, if you're lying down, sitting up, etc, and it doesn't necessarily mean anything's wrong. Hearing your heartbeat or whooshing in one ear is more concerning and should be checked. ...Read more

Sometimes there is arrhythmia with no palpitation (ie, it's not felt). Sometimes there is palpitation with no arrhythmia (ie, a false alarm). Both situations are very common. ...Read more
