Certainly, but...: Often, when we are diagnosed with one ailment, it changes how we perceive our body's natural state. Depending on your body habitus, you may have always had a palpable pulse in your abdomen. You may not have noticed it before you got a bit focused on your recent diagnosis. An examination by a doctor and some simple imaging tests would be the best way to rule out an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
