Posted by vivek on December 13, 2000 at 03:59:20:

I am a 40 yr old male not overweight or unfit. My blood pressure is 130/80 and occassionaly 140/90.I have a cholestrol of 220 mildly high triglycerides and a heart disese risk ratio of 4.3.
I smoke 4-5 cigs a day and drink 3-4 drinks (whisky,rum etc)my normal pulse is 74 but after drinking it goes to 90.
The problem is that when I sleep at night on my left side I hear my heart beat to the extent that it disturbs.
Few weeks back I felt that I was missing a heart beat. when I took my pulse I could clearly feel a beat miss and I could feel it too.Now it does not happen.
I got an ecg and an echo - 2d done. Both were perfectly normal.
My doctor says nothing is wrong, but I don't think hearing my heartbeat is normal -- any advise???
