    Is that not your pulse? You can feel it in your neck,wrists and stomach,especially if you are skinny.

    I have no heart.

    Or any other organs when I come to think about it.

    Yeh thats just your pulse, perfectly normal. If you're thin enough when you lie down you can actually see it. Pretty creepy, but kinda cool

    Taken from google -

    Heart palpitation means sensation of heart beat.In usual we don't sense our heart beat and if it happen it is abnormal.

    Heart palpitations cause the sensation of rapid, fluttering or pounding heartbeats. Although heart palpitations can be worrisome, they're often harmless. Common causes of heart palpitations include:

    1-Anxiety
    2-Stress
    3-Exercise
    4-Caffeine
    5-Nicotine
    6-Fever
    7-Hormone changes associated with menstruation, pregnancy or menopause
    8-Certain medications, such as pseudoephedrine, an ingredient in some cold and allergy medicines


    Basically, its harmless. You're fine.

    Hehe, I have the same thing... As posted by someone else, some people can even 'see' their heartbeat. If I lie down and I've just been exercising or something I can see my stomach vibrating... looks weird!

    I used to be so conscious of the feeling when I crossed my arms and it made me feel so uncomfortable!
    I don't really notice it these days, which is something!
    So, yeah - it is just your pulse.

    Probably feeling your abdominal aorta. It is the big, hose pipe sized blood vessel that sends loadsa blood from your heart to your tummy area and legs.
