Constantly aware of my heart beat


I am constantly aware of my heart beat. My entire life I remember being able to feel my heart beating. My husband says he can't feel his without touching his throat or wrist.

Anyhow, I am having tests done finally.

When I am doing physical work, walking up steep hills or after eating certain foods, I feel my heart beat in a wierd pattern. Almost like it pauses and then beats harder...not faster.

My blood pressure is slightly elevated, cholesterol is slightly elevated but generally in good health.

I remember this heart feeling throughout the years off and on but after having surgery for thyroid cancer I am feeling it more now.

Any ideas as to what this could be?

So far, I have wore the heart monitor for 24 hours and of course my heart behaved nicely and I had an ultra sound and again, it behaved nicely. Tomorrow I will have a treadmill test.

Thank you

I have same problem, lost 31 pounds recently and seems like without added fat on my body I can feel heart beat in my back, left side, right side.  I don't sleep on my chest so dont know if I can feel it there.  But I am constantly aware that it is beating also suffer from palps, flutters, flip-flops, pvcs, pacs.  Those are bothersome too...I have had them bad the last two days maybe since I ate so much Turkey on Thanksgiving...

Did you ever found an aswer to this condition?
I recently realize that I have always noticed my heartbeat and for some reason I started asking every member of my family they all gave the same answer, no one can feel his or her heart without touching their throat or wrist, but I feel it in my chest all the time, I can even feel my veins beat, as if I am totally aware of how my blood runs trhough my body. And as you, I can feel my heart stop or beat in funny ways every once in a while, like racing and then stopping, and other times it beats at pauses... it's weird.

I can always feel my heart beat, also. I failed recently a stress test and echolgardiogram. Now, I'm scheduled for an angiogram. The cardiologist said my pumping action is not right. Interesting! My bp is always low, pulse is normal, weight is right. Strong family history of heart problems, though. We'll see!
