Strange symptom: extra loud heartbeat in my ear. Any ideas?

Hey guys. I've posted a couple times before. 26-year-old male, chest pains that radiate to back, shoulder, neck and jaw, palpitations, elevated heart rate, muscles twitching, shooting pains all over my body, intermittent headaches and lightheadedness, numbness in my legs, et cetera, et cetera.

So far all testing on my heart has shown no irregularities. Still waiting on a couple of tests.

Recently, though, I've noticed a couple of new symptoms that seem rather strange, and I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on them.

First, as I've mentioned before, when I lie down, I become especially conscious of my heart beat. If I'm lying on my side, I can hear it beating in my ear. This is something I've been trying to accept and deal with, and I'm successful for the most part. But sometimes, when I'm lying on my side, either about to drift off to sleep or just after waking, I'll hear my heart beating regularly, and then I'll hear one strong, pronounced, LOUD beat in my ear. It's usually only one at a time, but sometimes I'll get two or three in a row. They're kind of hard to describe. My heart's rhythm stays the same, it's just that the beat is unusually loud and disturbing. I don't necessarily feel my heart beat stronger in my chest, but, like I say, it's a very loud sound in my ear that's very disconcerting. Any ideas on what this might be?

Also, I've gotten some inexplainable pains at different spots in my body that are really intense, especially in my lower left leg, groin and neck. They usually don't last for more than a minute, but they're becoming more and more bothersome. I'm kind of at my wit's end here.

I'll be discussing these with my doctor as well, but I'm not going to be seeing her for a week, and they've really been bugging the hell out of me. Any insights would be much appreciated, as always.

I just remembered another symptom that's been troubling me recently. Sometimes I feel a "wet" sensation inside my chest, like something is leaking. Anybody else get that too?
