Question

Heart making Weird noises?

Whenever I lay down my heart is making weird noises every time it beats, it sounds kind of like gurgling and kind of like my heart is pushing blood through a closed space kinda feeling. It only hurts occassionally and thats only if i press on it. It's been happening for like 2 days now, it started when I was sitting at my computer when I took out my contacts and I needed to see the screen ( i dont have glasses) and I got this really bad backache and continued sitting in a bad posture and then my back ache turned into a shoulder ache around my chest and the whole area hurt in general. But the pain in my chest went away but the noise is still there.

I'm already planning to go see the doctor tomorrow if it persists. I think it's because of how I sat. Should I be alarmed?

hon, sorry, but I didn't catch this til late; this IS your heart & you need to get it checked right away; you can get radiating pains to your back from complications to your heart; I don't know if your 'sounds' are through a stethescope or not, but you need to seriously get this checked..I would go to the ER if I were you & DO NOT let them let you leave until they listen to your heart with a stethescope...even IF your EKG comes out normal; HATE to be so frank, but I almost died from similar sx's; ended up being pericarditis...went into cardiac tamponade & sent to the ER (which I just returned from 4hrs prior) to have enregency surgery;; GET THIS CHECKED...NOW!

Dear Sir, you should know that your heart is probably one, if not the most, important organ in your human body. If there are any complications with your heart, leave it to a professional, not people suggesting ideas of what "may" work. I wish you luck and don't test your luck.

(Ease off the contacts, stick to glasses. Looks aren't everything if that's why you are wearing them :)

Um... YEAH, you should be alarmed. It's your heart. Go see a doctor even if it does go away; that stuff is not normal.

You hear a noise like 60 to 70 times a minute to know it's your heart? That has to be some of the shortest noises it could make. I just don't think that's your heart you are listening to. It sounds more like your stomach, and something it would do when there is something amiss with it. From what you wrote it sounds like you have pinched muscles in your back, the back pain, shoulder ache and the gurgling, all things that will happen with a pinched back muscle. The muscles pinch pulling the vertebrae closer together so it's easier for the pinched muscles to press into the nerves of the other organs where they leave the spine. It sounds like the stomach is one of the nerves that are pressed on and your stomach is reacting to the extra acid the brain is sending it now because the brain thinks you just ate because of the pressure on the nerves. Once you release the muscles in your back the pain will be gone and it won't matter how you sit at the computer. Here's how to release those muscles:

Back:

(do from a sitting position)

Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder and find the muscles next to your spine and firmly press on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side.

For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
