Do you freak when you hear your own heartbeat?

So, you know how when you lay on your side and smash your ear to your head you can hear your heart thumping? Well, I start getting an actual anxiety attack when it happens. Anyone else deal with the same? Is it just anxiety being its own unicorn-barf self?

How do you smash your ear to your head? If you mean just push your ear with your palm until you hear the heartbeat (pulse) , then it may be best not to bother.
