Last night i was sitting on my friends bed, and he heard something his chest that sounded like cracking, and upon closer examination, i found out that his heart was making audible beats. The beats were not irregular, nor was he experiencing any chest pain or dizziness or shortness of breath. I am just concerned as to why all of the sudden we can hear his heart beat as well as him being able to feel it in his chest.
I found that it is more prominent when he slouch over, but i can still faintly hear it when he am sitting straight up and down. I told him he should probably call a doctor, but he is a stubborn fellow and said he didn't want to make any hasty moves, and that he would wait and see if it got worse.
Now i may be overreacting, but i am just worried that he wont do anyting and something may happen. Any advice???View Thread
