A gallop rhythm is a type of heart murmur, it refers to a (usually abnormal) rhythm of the heart heard through a stethascope. The normal heart rhythm contains two audible heart sounds  S1 and S2 that we all know as, the "lub-dub" rhythm; which are caused by the closing of valves in the heart.

A gallop rhythm contains another sound, called S3 or S4, dependent upon where in the cycle this added sound comes. Gallop rhythms may be heard in young or athletic people, but may also be a sign of serious cardiac problems like heart failure. If you haven't had an echocardiogram yet, this would be an important diagnostic tool to get. This would give a good look at the valves in your heart to see how they are functioning.
