Hello Mario, Thank you for the question.
The sound you hear may be a beating heart sound. Cough symptoms are usually accompanied by other symptoms such as sore throat, runny nose, chest pain, fever, night sweats, weight loss, palpitations, and others. A cough that arises with changes in body position can be caused by:
normal conditions, if only appear occasionally
the presence of foreign bodies in the respiratory tract
irritation of the respiratory tract
If symptoms are mild and appear only occasionally, please first monitor these symptoms and follow these recommendations: avoid exposure to dust and other air pollution, keep your house and bedroom clean, and avoid smoking. If the symptoms always appear with certain body positions, especially if accompanied by high fever and shortness of breath, you are encouraged to consult with a general practitioner further. The doctor needs to do an interview, examine you, and if necessary do further tests such as x-rays. Further treatment will be given by the doctor after ascertaining the cause.
I hope this helps.
