In brief: A thumping heart...

Some people can feel the heart beats, especially in situation such as significant fear as during a panic attack.
.Often these folks wil describe "pounding heart" that is about "jump out of the chest" sensation. So yes, at times you can hear your thumping heart! if you have concerns, consult your doc. Good luck.
