Hearing own pulse
« on: 18/10/2005 08:20:07 »
Hi
Does anyone know what it means when someone hears their own blood flow and pulse?  At night it occurs or when under stress.

Sometimes happens in the latter phase of sleeping

Thanks
Janet

Thats's a great question Janet...and one that I can totally relate to. I get exactly the same experience, usually in bed. Can be a little disconcerting. I find if I change my sleeping position it goes away, but I hope we get an answer.

Is that a difficult question to answer? When you are lying on the pillow as you say you hear your own pulse: this is because your ears work on vibration and the vibrations from your pulse especially near your neck travel up the pillow and as the rest of your body is at rest and quiet even up your spine. But good question hope that explains it.

Exact same thing happens to me, but only when I lie on my right side, not my left!

Do you have a fast heart rate like I do?

Sometimes when I sit quitely I can hear my pulse and what sound like blood flow in my left ear.  I recently had a thorough ultrasonic check of my neck arteries and they are clear.  Anyone understand this situation?
