Heart making squelching noise

When I exercise and my heart rate increases I sometimes hear my heart (or I think it s my heart as it goes to the beat) making this squelching noise, but I can only hear it when I hold in a breath. If I breath out and hold it there I can t hear the noise. Can anyone shed any light on this? Any Doctors in the house? wow! Way to scare me! lol ok I ll get it checked out. THANKS!!!!!

Hiya, I just experienced this too, with the holding breath and everything, what did your doctor say to you?
Nephrologist Dr. Rakesh Madhyastha's  Response
Thanks for the query.
It is normal to feel your heart beat after exercise but if it causing discomfort, pain or black outs then please get it checked by a general physician. Go to him with an ECG and an ECHO to help him out,

It could be a mild heart murmur, or it might be an asthmatic wheeze, it can feel like that sometimes. I'm not a doctor, this is just my opinion.

I am a 21-year-old male college student. Over the past couple of months I have started to experience a very hard pounding heartbeat. I can just be sitting and laying down trying to sleep and it feels like my heart is going to pound out of my chest. It isn t necessarily beating fast, just hard. And it sometimes feels that my heart is heavy . About six weeks ago it was really bad after a day of drinking a couple of energy/alcoholic drinks, so I went to the ER the next day. They did a EKG and said it was normal. Did blood work which was normal. They also did a chest x-ray and the doctor told me I did have a larger than normal heart, but nothing to worry about. I am scared and ready to go to a cardiologist. Any ideas?

I just had my yearly physical and once again my EKG came up abnormal. I m 56 years old and play soccer twice a week in addition to other excercise. I went to a cardiologist last year and he said I was fine and was not concerned. My current doctor says there is no change in the EKG from 2006. Will I always have an abnormal EKG and should I be worried?

hello Dr. ive been having chest pains for about 9 months now, couple months ago i went to the doctor and we did an EKG, even a holter monitor because it felt like i had an irregular heartbeat, or it skipped a beat sometimes and id have to stop myself and get myself together for a moment. ekg, holter monitor results were all good, went to the lab, took blood, everything according to my doctor is normal( im Air Force so i go to the military doctor) i seen them in july, now im having chest pains again, i feel like my spleen is swollen even under my spleen where i think my liver is hurts occasionally. i have swollen lymph nodes wich has been going on for about 5 weeks, when i went to talk to the doctor about that they pretty much gave me prilosec for GERD, and im suppose to see if that helps. im 24 years old never had any other problems, no family history, and i am a male. ive also had a lumbar sprain 4 years ago and have had mid back problems as well. sometimes the chest pain is really dull, sometimes it feels like im getting pricked with a needle, on a scale of 1-10 id say the pain is normally about a 4. mostly on the left side, occasionally on the right also. ive been feeling really weak and tired lately through out the day. and im also deployed to a non disclosed location in southwest asia so medical care is not so great here. please help me out and give me any advice thank you so much. alden
