I'm also trying to figure out what it is, having the same thing. This heartbeat thing, in my case, seems to be the result of somesort of spasm I had. I remember getting these cramps on a much lower intensity for about
4-5 months, but like I said, on a much lower scale, then it got more intense until the last time where the cramp thing lasted for about
3 days. The cramps are not particularly enjoyable, basically feels like your heart is petrifying. I went to see a gp. He did the ekg thing on me, then he sent me for bloodtests and told me that it might be esophageal spasms. Still waiting for feedback on that, but, I clearly remember this heartbeat thing being a result of whatever that spasm thing is. The beats started about
two days into the spasm period, and lasted for a little more than a week. To clarify my version of the loud heartbeat, it was loud, as if someone was knocking from the inside. Not the pulse sound you might hear in your head sometimes from high bloodpresure, this I could hear clearly on the outside of my body. People standing about
a meter away would be able to hear it. At first I could hear it whenever I was not standing, like when I was driving, when I laid down, in short all positions except standing. It would be the loudest just when I went to sleep. Its sometimes a slightly wet sound, as if there is some sort of air in my ribs. The initial cramps came from the same area, almost the middle of my chest, but more to the left side, never centre, always the middle of the left side of my chest. The last time it also moved down to the left side of my body, if you go from under the armpit down to where your ribs end, there. Anywhow, the heartbeat sounds came from within my left chest but i could hear it the clearest in the middle of my chest. It later on started to fade, and would only hear it in certain positions like laying on my back, loud, laying on my left shoulder, very soft but weirdly enough also a little pain with the heartbeat, on my right shoulder, nothing, no sound, no pain. Eventually all the pain was gone, just the beat, and then that also faded away. I feel fine now, but Im pretty sure it wil happen again and frankly, I'm tired of not getting awnsers or help. Ill probably see the gp this week. Im not sure if this descript
ion of situations relate to any of the other cases, if anyone can ad some more info on this, it would be great. Thank you.
