In a very thin person is it normal to feel your heartbeat in your stomach when laying flat on back? Sometimes its very strong other times its faint

Feeling heartbeat: You are likely feeling your aortic pulsation simply due to being very thin. This sensation can normally vary from weak to strong. I wouldn''t worry.

Is it normal to feel heartbeat skip a few beats in chest when lying on stomach? Happens almost every time I lay down.

Is it normal to feel heartbeat skip a few beats in chest when lying on stomach? Happens almost every time I lay down.

No: It is not normal, but it may or may not be important. It depends on what the abnormal heart rhythm is, how often you get it, how many abnormal beats in a row you get, where in the heart the extra beats arise, the condition of the rest of your heart, and the family history of heart problems. Tell your doctor about it.

The abdominal aorta: You are feeling the pulse from the great vessel called abdominal aorta -- and it has nothing to do with your stomach or H.pylori you could ask your doctor to examine -- and make sure it's not abdominal aortic aneurysm

Is it normal for your stomach to feel hard and to be able to see your heartbeat?

No: A distented stomach is not normal. It could be something more benign like gassy distention, however other possibilities include an illeus or bowel obstruction. Would get checked if you are hurting or if problem persists.

Anuerysm or not: It's not uncommon for people to feel your pulse in your abdomen occasionally. However, it can be a sign of a dangerous condition called an abdominal aortic anuerysm (aaa). AAA is screened for with a simple sonogram. It is worth seeing your doc to see if you might need a AAA screen.

Occasionally I well feel a Random kind of strong heartbeat in my stomach is that normal? When it happens its only one beat

Bad or not: Most likely you are sensing a PVC, an early contraction of your heart that is common and NOT dangerous. Just be sure you don't have any swelling in that area that could indicate an aneurysm which is life threatening. Probably worth a quick doctor visit at some point. For your age, unlikely anything bad though.

East like a horse?: You probably do since you're young, male, haven't seen yourself in a future mirror yet when you won't be able to eat like that without PAYING FOR IT! LOL- But for the time being, that pulsation you feel is no biggie...If you're of a thinner body frame then, the pulsation is likely your abdominal aorta...you're fine. Have some Carrot Cake for me! LOL! Www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi for more info

Notice once and a while feeling heartbeat in stomach. I'm 31, 225, 5'11". Just felt it again while lying on stomach. Normal? Last checked BP 124/82.

Maybe normal...: ...but we can't rule out aneurysm without an imaging study. While we have your attention, your current height and weight corresponds to a body mass index of 31 (obese is >30) -- please consider weight reduction as appropriate.

Probably normal: He is probably hearing the radiation of your heart beating which is very nearby and can be easily heard in some, especially if you are lean. Unless you can feel the aorta pulsating in the stomach or if any other symptoms, would not typically be of concern.

If I concentrate attention on my heartbeat I can feel it in my chest and stomach while stilling, standing, and most of all laying down. Is this normal?

Yes: If you are paying attention, you can feel your heart beating. There is a thin muscle between your chest and your abdomen (the diaphragm) so you can feel your heart beating in your abdomen too. Be well.

Normal: You are feeling the abdominal aortic pulsation which is within physiological limits. I was the living anatomy of my cl;ass several decades ago! Get it checked at your next doctor's visit since I have not examined you.

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?

Are you thin?: Hi. You are NOT seeing your stomach pulse. That's your aorta. And at age 20, it's not a AAA unless you have Marfan's or syphilis (which I HIGHLY suspect you do not). I suspect you are what we refer to in medicine as "the worried well". Good luck!
