Dear Mom of Two
Thanks for your question. My patients sometimes ask me the same question and I facetiously tell them not to worry when they hear their hearts beating, rather worry when they can’t hear their hearts beating!
It is perfectly normal to be aware of your heart. Some people are and some people aren’t, but it is not abnormal. The problem, if one can even call it a problem, is not the fault of your heart, which is simply doing its job. The “problem” is just your increased perception of your heart beat, which is a psychological phenomenon. By far the best is to simply stop worrying about it. It is not a problem!
Best wishes, JT.
