Acid inc in stomach: anxiety or stress is most likely the answer. These conditions frequently cause one to over secrete stomach acid and also triggers involuntary muscle spasm and tightness, both of which can contribute to the feeling that you describe.

Hello. I was wondering if you know what might cause me to feel my pulse in my stomach. Also, feels kind of tight and sometimes hurts when pressed on.

Hello. I was wondering if you know what might cause me to feel my pulse in my stomach. Also, feels kind of tight and sometimes hurts when pressed on.

The aorta.: Depends on age. If you are a smoker over the age of 65 or had a tearing pain in your abdomen or history of severe abdominal trauma I would be concerned about an aneurysm. If none of those are true I suspect this is just your aortic pulse. In thin people you can sometimes feel it quite clearly.
