If you are a male smoker with a family history of AAA then you should definitely have an ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Strong pulse in abdomen, I can see and feel. Is it AAA or taa? I am so worried, im 19, and have no insurance. What should I do?
AAA: Unlikely. In a thin person the abdominal aorta can be felt (palpated). But if you have concerns go see a doctor to find out or to be considered for an ultrasonography to rule out AAA. ALL SMOKERS MUST BE SCREENED ONCE IN LIFETIME FOR AAA. ...Read more
Strong pulse in abdomen, I can see and feel. Is it AAA or taa? I am 19, no insurance. Where should I go to get this checked out? Tests cost too much

Does the aorta pulsate? Strong pulse in my stomach. Scared could be a AAA although I've had it as long as I can remember. (Years). Female and 17
Calm down.....: Relax, there is nothing terribly unusual about discovering the existence of various pulse points throughout the body. The aorta is the largest vessel leaving the heart and as the heart pulses, so goes the aorta. It's unusual that a 17 yo girl would ask about this, so I wonder if you've discovered a family history of AAA. ...Read more
Ican feel my abdominal aorta always pulsing sometimes its strong sometimes its weaker than other times only when lying on my back 19 6'0 163 lbs. Aaa?
Probably not: Very thin patients can often feel their aorta and become concerned that it represents an aneurysm. I wouldn't worry at all. And at 19 an aortic aneurysm would be really unlikely unless you had a connective tissue disorder like marfan's or ehlers-danlos syndromes, but this is likely something you'd have found out by now. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Very strong heart beat like pulse in stomach. Left side. Is this just my aorta? Worried could be AAA. I'm 16 and female.
Stop worrying: You are just feeling the pulsation of your abdominal aorta. Abdominal aortic aneurysms are rare in women under age 55 y/o and are 6 times more common in men than women. Particularly in smokers. In one population study of 6386 people there were NO abdominal aortic aneurysms under the age of 48 years old. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When was I told that I had acid reflux/gerd I noticed my stomach pulse it got me really worried because I never noticed it does it mean AAA or nothing?
NO..: Noticing your pulse in the pit of your stomach is normal. Aortic aneurysm would be hardly likely at age 21, the risk increases with age, particularly a risk for male smokers over the age of 55. There is also a genetic component. First degree relatives and siblings of a patient with AA have a significantly increased risk of having the development of an AA. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Asked dr on here about seeing pulse on stomach when book is laying on top of it- normal or AAA. He said normal for most but should get ultra anyway? Y
Abdominal Aneurysms: Are not common. Most physicians, with even limited experience, can feel/estimate the abdominal aorta size very quickly on examination, unless the individual is quite obese, in which case one would be unlikely to observe the aortic pulse moving a book laying on the abdomen.

I have had lower right sided pain since fri and I have pulsing in my lower stomach, I fear AAA or appendix issues. I have had bloating/gi issues, er?
See your PCP: Hopefully you have a primary care provider, as this is something that could be seen and treated by them without having you spend hours in a ed. An AAA would be low on the possibilities in your age group, and unless severe pain, feverish and worsening symptoms may not be your appendix-plus it has been going on for days. Call your pcp as they know you best and should be able to see you asap. ...Read more
I have anxiety and I can feel my pulse in my stomach I've seen two doctors one do a xray should I be concerned about a aaa?
AAA very unlikely.: Hi CoryA, thanks for the question. I'm happy to discuss this with you. Without knowing anything about you, I can say the likelihood that you have a AAA is very, very low. These almost always occur in the elderly. You do have an increased risk if you happen to have a certain disease that generally makes you very tall and thin. Have you heard of Marfan's Syndrome? If not, AAA is very unlikely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
