I sometimes hear my own heart beating?

To clarify, I don't hear it in my ear; anyone within the room could hear my heart beating when it happens. It's totally different from that pounding/beating you get in the ears from high blood flow.

Sometimes when I really stress my heart and put pressure on it, I hear this loud "woosh woosh woosh" murmur sound and it freaks me out.

I had the doctors do several EKGs, X-Ray and a 3D ultrasound, but they said nothing was wrong with it and that I had an "innocent" murmur. They did not hear my heart when it was producing this sound.

Is it possible they missed something even with such a thorough exam?

Even more worrying, I've always had poor cardiovascular endurance. I always thought I was out of shape, but even as a kid I couldn't run as long as others during recess.

I have a fast resting heart rate, too. 90-120 bpm.

What's wrong with me?

    See your doctor to rule out any congenital cardiac defect or underlying cause.
