    What causes hearing of loud squishing noises from chest area?

Posted on Tue, 31 May 2016 in Hypertension and Heart Disease
Question: I am hearing a loud "squishing" noise by my heart. It is a rhythmic, consistent sound all day. There is no discomfort. At first I thought it was digestion but it continues long after meals...actually never quits. I am a wheelchair user due to M.S. thus my abdomen is constricted but even at night when I am prone, I still have it.

Brief Answer:
Possibility of gaseous sound from stomach is more.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Such kind of sound from chest area is commonly due to gaseous movements of stomach.. But better to rule out heart related diseases first.. So get done ecg and 2d echo to rule out heart diseases.
If both these are normal, then no need to worry for heart disease.. You are immobile. So gaseous distention of stomach is likely.
And this gives such sound.
So better to take proton pump inhibitors (pantoprazole) and pro kinetic (levosulperide) combination.
Take high fiber diet more.
Don't worry, you will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query. The will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
