Brief Answer:
Usually we can't feel our blood flow

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mrs,

Usually we can't feel our blood flow independent whether it is turbulent or not.
We can feel only when there is organ malperfusion as a result of decreased blood flow to organs. It is in the case of narrowed vessels.

Hope I could help you

Wishing you good health
