So I have been having pvcs and have been to the dr. They reassured me they are harmless. I was concerned because I have had a repaired vsd and asd as a baby. They found I have a first degree AV block, and possibly alpha thalassimia, but told me that since I am young (28) and female that everything was okay. I did have a lot of tests. Any how all this got me feeling my pulse a lot. I noticed that my pulse in my left carotid artery is always just one heart sound, but that in my right carotid artery I can feel two heart sounds when I breathe in deeply. Just wondering if that is normal or not since there was some concern I may have pulmonary hypertension. Thanks!
Sounds like you have gotten available medical help and they tell you not to worry.
As for the feeling a heart pulse I am the least able to comment as I can't even find mine without a stethoscope. That said, I am sure you have a normal two-sound pulse (the operation of two valves in the left ventricle I believe) it goes throughout your body. It may be that the left and right feel different because one is closer to the left ventricle in the blood circuit, and thus sees more of the pressure shifts.
Try not to look for problems, best to take a positive mindset and then if something new comes along think it through and discuss with your doctor if it continues.
