I Can Feel A Strong Pulse Below My Stomach Does This Mean That I Have An Aaa
Maybe: A very slender person will likely be able to feel their own aorta. Most people should not be able to do that. If you have any concerns or if you have family history of aneurysm disease then you should have an ultrasound. If you are a male smoker with a family history of AAA then you should definitely have an ultrasound. ...Read more

Is it normal to be able to see and feel a strong pulse in your abdomen with each heart beat? Or could it be AAA?
Depends on details: Normal, slim teens and young college students can see their pulse in their stomach areas when lying down, and they can feel it there too. If there are other reasons a teen or student is worried that he is not a normal person, he can call his doctor. Otherwise, he can just ask his pediatrician or primary care doctor about the stomach pulse beat during his routine check-up. ...Read more

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
Not unusual: It is not unusual to see your pulse in your abdomen especially if you are thin. It is probably normal, but without an exam I cannot say that for sure. It would be very easy for you to see your family doctor to have it checked out. ...Read more
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 more
Pounding pulse in my stomach when lying on back sometimes it is strong sometimes it is not as strong. Is it something bad like aaa? I'm 19 160lb 6'0
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 more

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 more

I can see my stomach pulse with heartbeat when laying back is this normal I cant really feel a pulse in stomach just see it. Is it AAA or normal. Help?
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.

Is there anyrhing else that can give me pulsing abdomen besides aaa. Uncomfortable feelong in that area 9 days can it be damage to stomoch or just anxi?

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 more
Pulse in my stomach. I was told I was too young for aaa, any ideas? I have had full abdominal ultrasounds but nothing that looks at aorta directly.
I used to make myself vomit by putting pressure on my stomach. I did this on& off 9 years. I can see my pulse in my stomach now, could this be an AAA?
Doubt AAA.: I don't believe you could give yourself an aneurysm by making yourself vomit for this long. However, there could be a swollen organ sitting atop a normal aorta, transmitting its pulse so you can feel it. Candidates in this context could include the liver, pancreas and stomach. This does deserve investigation, then. ...Read more
Just noticed abdominal pulse. Echo however was thoroughly examined (Normal). CT Scan was also normal. AAA completely ruled out? No need to worry?
Correct: It's common to see or feel a transmitted pulse from the aorta in the abdomen especially when you are lying down. ...Read more

I noticed my stomach pulse whenever I first learned I had acid reflux/gerd is it normal asked doctor and said that im fine why is it can it be aaa?
Pulse in abs: It may be but probably is not. Would be extremely unusual in a patient as young as you. A simple abdominal ultrasound would answer the question for you. ...Read more
Had ultras for AAA couple weeks ago. Came out clear. Still hav pulse in stomoch all the time. Anxiety going away but worried that ultras didn't find it?

For a year now I can feel a strong pulse in my stomach, about an inch below my ribs, in the center of both ribs. I feel it when pressing on area. Why?
Probably your Aorta: I suspect you are feeling your aorta pulsating- this is the largest artery in the body and the abdominal portion of it is located where you are describing. It would be a good idea to have your doctor examine you and confirm this though, especially if you are having any abdominal or back pain as that could signify a problem with it. ...Read more
I can feel a strong pulse on left side abdomen with a small lump. Occasionaly there is a sharp pain. Only notice this after I gave birth 11 months ago?
You may need to make: Sure that you are not pregnant with another child first. Are you having steady regular menstrual periods? If so, then your "lump" may need further evaluation with Xrays and such. I would do pregnancy tests if you have not had periods, then see your healthcare provider for further help. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
