You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body. The intensity of the pain does not always reflect the seriousness of the condition causing the pain. Severe abdominal pain can be from mild conditions, such as gas or the cramping of viral gastroenteritis. On the other hand, relatively mild pain or no pain may be present with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer of the ...Read more

I started feeling a pulse in my left outer thigh like a heartbeat pulse and have had an abdominal pain by groin is this an aortic aneurysm?

I started feeling a pulse in my left outer thigh like a heartbeat pulse and have had an abdominal pain by groin is this an aortic aneurysm?
