Probably nothing serious, sounds like palpitations to me. You should definitely get it checked out though, if nothing else just for peace of mind.

You really should consult a cardiologist. I have heard where an arrythmia can cause you to feel like your heartbeat is moving your entire body. Right after my bypass surgery my heart beat so hard that it felt like it was rocking me in my bed.

Regarding the pounding of your heart at night.

Did you just buy new sheets, a new blanket, new pajamas or a new pillow for your bed?

Does your heart beat ok BEFORE you lie down?

Your first step is to see a cardiologist...would be a good idea to have an echocardiogram done (just an ultrasound of your heart)...best of luck

if your heart beat is slow and regular what you're experiencing is awareness of the heartbeat. you don't require any tests at all. if you were aware of an abnormally fast or an irregular heartbeat that would be different. in that case you would need a heart rate monitor not an echocardiogram which tells you nothing about the heart rhythm
