Yes and no. These are most likely symptoms of cardioneurosis. It's hard to say anything without an ECG. If this bothers you, contact a therapist, he will prescribe a minimum set of examinations. There are several types of disorders in the interaction of the cardiovascular and nervous systems, in which disorders in the activity of the nervous system are felt by patients as symptoms of heart disease, but in fact the heart is healthy. Perhaps you have this option.

Of course it's okay. You don't have to feel the heartbeat through your chest. There are a lot of reasons. This may be a feature of the structure of the chest, the location of the heart, the presence of developed muscles and pronounced subcutaneous adipose tissue. The heartbeat can be easily felt through the thin chest wall in people of asthenic constitution, in children and adolescents. In addition, the cause of pronounced pulsation can be various pathologies of the heart (myocardial hypertrophy in arterial hypertension, heart defects, cardiomyopathy, and many others).

Most often, during examination, the doctor determines the so-called apical impulse (a small area in 5 intercostal space approximately under the nipple), where palpitations are felt.

Most likely there is nothing to worry about. But if something else is worried, you can see a cardiologist. He will dispel your doubts or make a diagnosis, if there is a reason for this.
