Abdominal aorta: You are most likely describing your abdominal aorta. The abdominal aorta is the largest artery in the body and in thin people is often normally palpable and felt to pulsate. If concerned, and you just started noticing it, let you dr. Know, and an ultrasound of the abdomen is non-invasive and can evaluate your aorta.
