many people have a visible pulse in their abdomen and its normal. If you're anxious and you focus your attention on your body, you will probably imagine all sorts of problems that don't exist. It's normal for people with anxiety to do that. The important thing is to learn to control your anxiety, and find an understanding primary doc who can reassure you when something comes up.
