If negative, you should see a GI specialist for further evaluation. ...Read more

I have a profound "heartbeat" in abdomen. Just above belly button. Should i be concerned about this?

I have a profound "heartbeat" in abdomen. Just above belly button. Should i be concerned about this?

Prior : Prior to answering your question, avvo's terms of use state, "such information should be used only as a starting point for addressing your medical issues. It is not a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. You should not disregard medical advice from your doctor, or avoid obtaining medical care, due to any health information you obtain on the site." without knowing your age, eating habits, body habitus (weight, bmi), complete blood count and other lab tests, past medical history, a simple "no" or "yes" answer will not suffice. I would recommend visiting your primary care physician to discuss all of these. In general, thin individuals when laying flat on their back, can see their abdominal aorta (i.e. "heartbeat" in the abdomen) pulsating which delivers oxygen to the lower parts of your body, and this is normal. However, if you are having symptoms, have a past history or family history of "heart problems", it would be wise to discuss this with your physician. ...Read more

Nonspecific: No specific diagnosis can be attached to this. Most likely an abdominal muscle problem. Could also be GYN related, a rare type of hernia (Spigelian), diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and even an umbilical hernia.
