Lung pulsing, shortness of breath

Hi. I am having trouble sleeping because of a pulsing that is happening near my heart. I can only assume its my lungs. It felt like a valve that is opening and closing. It is scaring me because I don't think I should be able to feel these things that are happening inside of my body. What's wrong? Please help.

It sounds that you are just feeling your heart beats. You can not feel any valves in the heart. If it concerns you - visit a cardiologist. By Andre Strizhak
