Noise comes from heart and hurts. What are the complication?

hello, my boyfriends heart has been making some very strange noises for a while now. we are both concerned but he wont do anything about it. he says that it hurts him some times and the noises are loudest when he is laying down. a way to describe them would be very loud gurgling noises and loud thumps like when your underwater in the bath and you hit the side of the bath tub. what do you think it could be and do you think he should get it checked out?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

They are probably borborygmi – sounds from the intestine!...they can at times be heard in the chest / and by others too...
Get him examined by a doctor / may be a few investigations will be necessary...

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
