Is it possible for your heart to make noises that you can hear without a stethoscope?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes it is possible
Some people can hear their own heartbeats, but most can't.
You can put your ear next to someone's chest and hear the heart beat. High adreneline level such as after a rapid and sustained run can cause your heart to beat fast and hard--pounding--and you maybe able to hear it without anything....So, it is possible...And common.

is it once in a blue moon or all the time? also, how long does it last? do you have any other symptoms with it --such dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath etc..?
Dr. Bac Nguyen
if that is the case---PVCs are common. if you have nothing else, I would not worry. But, minimize stimulant use--i.e cold medicines, caffene etc...as these may increase the instensity and frequency of your PVCs etc..
