Post Heart Clearly Visible

Whenever I Stand Up Straight For Longer Than About 10-20 Seconds, I Can Really See My Heart Beat, It's Not Just A Little Beat Going In And Out, Its Really Visible And Stick's Out Pretty Far. Is This Serious, Is My Heart Close To My Ribs, Or Is This Normal?

Thanx, Kev

hi, i posted almost the same thing a few weeks ago and everyone told me it was totally normal and it just means you're alive. I was also told it's common in really thin people.

I know exactly what you're talking about. My heart does the same thing and has been for a long time. I'm 19 male and fairly thin, however I can see my heart beating out in like 3 places and all three are very visible (below my pec (which I guess is the normal spot), kinda in my pec muscle and just below my sternum. It beats out after I run, or even when I'm just laying around doing nothing. Even my friends have noticed at the beach or at pool parties. I just think it's weird to have it come out in more than one place.... is that normal?

thx
