    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I've been studying for a government exam and just now had it in the last few hours. Thought I'd look it up. Almost sounds like a dull Snapple bottle cap when pushed in and released. Kinda' freaked me out. I was diagnosed with bradycardia about 5 years ago but never experienced this. Like everyone else's I've read ... when you open your mouth it gets louder and is in sync with your heart beat. I'm a 44 yo male with a BMI of 24, so the withings scale says. I work on vessels 6 months a year and do strenuous work. I'm about to go back to work in a month but would like to know more about this ... no internet in the seas. As as far as I can see, it isn't popular so an ear / nose / throat specialist most likely won't have a clue. But I'll bring it up at my next physical and if I know something new I'll post it.

    My apology. I believed I was answering a thread and now cannot seem to remove this. I have sense figured it out and copied / pasted this in the discussion I was in. Just signed up and new to here ... I'll learn.
