Hi,my 15 year old son has started getting this odd problem when his heartbearts from just walking up the stairs , after if he opens his mouth you can atually hear it quite loudly it sound like a ticking clock and then slowly gets quieter as heartbeat slows, i phoned my gp to explain his symtoms she didnt sound overly worried but im seeing her in a few days to check as im not convinced it a normal thing, just wondering if anyone had any idea what this is or the likely cause,

    Wow never heard of that. I've got Pulsitile tinnitus where I can here my heartbeat in my ear but not the mouth. Is he having any other symptoms? Chest pain, fever, caughing anything? I'm not a doctor but I've had a lot a work done to my heart for being only 36. And I just got the ok today from cardiologist that my hearts and arteries are all good.

      No my condition is common. It usually happens it people over 60 but being only 36 it could be because I'm overweight so I'm working on that really hard. Ya that's kind of weird it's sounds like you just gotta see what your doctor says and if your not satisfied with that I'd go to another one. I hope all is well with him. Keep us updated.
