I cannot feel my heart beat

Hi, I have recently started gaining more pec muscle, but its like I cant feel my heart beat except for right below my pec. Is this normal? The doc said it sounded fine but he didnt feel it, if it sounds fine then does that mean that its beating normally. Is it normal for the heart to beat harder at the bottom of the heart?

From what you tell me, everything sounds perfectly normal. Believe me, if you exercise hard enough you will your heart beat! Your heart is not
beating harder, it is just closer to your chest wall at that location (near your left nipple).

Hope this helps,
Dr T
