Had a CT scan 4 mnt ago for abdominal bloating came out clear last 3 months stomach pulsating and throbbing what can cause this anxiety or sometn else?

Abd pain/cramps: Many things can cause this. Normal CT scan very reassuring. Irritable bowel, stress, anxiety can all play a role. Any things in your diet that are triggers? Might want to keep symptom diary and dietary diary and see if anything is a trigger. Also your stress/anxiety level day to day, keep track of it along with the others. May help point to a cause. Hope this helps. Good luck ...Read more

I have been experiencing a pulsating sensation in my stomach or abdominal area, a little to try left, the doctor I saw said he felt it was my abdominal aorta. I am now experiencing a deep dull pain slightly in the same area. What is going on?

I have been experiencing a pulsating sensation in my stomach or abdominal area, a little to try left, the doctor I saw said he felt it was my abdominal aorta. I am now experiencing a deep dull pain slightly in the same area. What is going on?

Doubt related: The aorta is easy to palpate in a thin person. 26 year old unlikely to have aortic disease unless other diseases (marfans, EDS) are present. The deep dull pain could be related to other organs or back. Other symptoms? Nausea, diarrhea, injury? ...Read more

I have a severe cold right now with a low grade fever the usual stuff my concern is in my upper right abdomen below my ribs every so often I get a pulsating stabbing pain.?

Costochondritis or?: What meant by severe cold + duration of cold? Possibly a sinusitis with post nasal drainage causing coughing. If so, excessive coughing can cause extra use of ribs and muscles between the ribs, stretching ligaments. This is Costochondritis + can cause stabbing pain when twisting or coughing. Also could be infection-Bronchitis or even Gall Bladder (pain RU abdomen). If so, need to see doctor ...Read more

Unsure: This can sometimes be normal, especially in slender persons, but it can also be indicating blood pressure issues (especially when stressed) or problems with the abdominal aorta. These latter two need checked by a doctor within the next few weeks ...Read more

On/off pulsating pain on left side of chest. Happens at least once a week. Normal EKG 2 years ago while in treatment for anorexia. Anxiety?

Likely non cardiac: Based on the limited information I can tell you that at the age of 21 it is almost impossible to have heart related chest pain and other life threatening causes of chest pain. It is likely muscle skeletal pain, although anxiety can be the cause too. Recommend see a doctor for this for proper diagnosis and treatment ...Read more

Need Formal Eval: I empathize with your dilemma-it is very frustrating when pain is attributed to "anxiety" (though it does occur). You need to find a gastroenterologist or primary care dr. Willing to take the time to review all the tests performed to-date. Chances are that you need a "problem-solver" rather than repeating tests already completed. Have you had a cck-hida scan? This checks 4 gallbladder dysfunction. ...Read more

Anxiety: All your symptoms can be explained by anxiety. That being said, seeing an internist for a complete exam is recommended. If everything checks out, then seeing a specialist in anxiety disorders is the thing for you to do. Long term anxiety can result in physical problems, so lets address this asap. ...Read more

Are my symptoms all a result of anxiety/depression? For last 3 years: - decreasing energy and immunity - episodes of abdominal pain daily - frequent urination - sleep 12 hours daily and get a cold regularly - episodes of fast heart rate, ear noise, and ch

Although: Although many of these symptoms might be explained by depression and anxiety, they could have other causes. That is the reason that your medical health needs to be checked out before just assuming it is from a mental health problem. For instance: is your vitamin d level normal? Is your carnitine level normal? Is your thyroid level normal? If you are male - is your testosterone level normal? Are you anemic? Do you have a urinary tract infection? This is a tiny sampling. I recommend that you have a thorough physical examination and if none of your symptoms are explained by medical conditions, then follow through with a psychiatric evaluation. Take care. ...Read more

Have you ruled out: Restless legs syndrome, Parkinson's disease, MS or other neurodegenerative disorders? If this is a case of anxiety/depression, you have some very strong somatic symptoms--more than most. You can treat these by meds and/or relaxation-response psychotherapy, but you need a medical/psychological assessment first. This symptom cluster calls for a visit to a psychiatrist. ...Read more

Had rt leg pain, now gone. Thought maybe DVT don't really have any risk factors but now abdomen area hurts? Could it travel? I have health anxiety to

Let me see: Having leg pain could be from many sources including blood clots especially if used oral contraceptive. Some time you do not have pain and still get blood clot. For the clot to travel to the abdomen it must be serious one and you will feel it. For this reason I do not think so. Always be careful if you having blood clot and go have it checked. ...Read more

What are the odds I have abdominal aortic aneurysm at age 24 but have symptoms of it for 4 years? Like pulsing and pain

What are the odds I have abdominal aortic aneurysm at age 24 but have symptoms of it for 4 years? Like pulsing and pain

AAA.: It would be unusual to have an AAA at your age, unless you have some underlying medical condition that would make you more likely to have one at your age. We can sometimes normally feel the pulse of the aorta through the skin of the abdomen or even transmitted across the liver if we're pushing on the liver. But it couldn't hurt to confirm/deny with an abdominal ultrasound. ...Read more
