What does it mean when you feel a pulse in your stomach?

What does it mean when you feel a pulse in your stomach?

See a doctor ASAP: A main artery, the aorta, runs from the heart down to the abdomen, called the abdominal aorta. If the walls of the vessel weaken and the artery bulges out like a big balloon, you may feel a mass in your stomach region and feel a pulsation. If this is the cause, get it seen soon because if the wall of the artery bursts, you will bleed to death rapidly. ...Read more

Atypical abdominal p: How old are you and when was your last period? Thin people can feel their aortic pulsation. Pain may be co-incidental from some thing else. Positive pregnancy is made from other means like the positive pregnancy test in the appropriate setting. ...Read more

What does it mean when you have a pulse in your stomach?

Feeling Aortic Pulse: Most likely you are feeling the pulse of the abdominal aorta, much easier to feel in slender people because it is behind all the intestines, in front of the vertebra (back bone) & becomes more difficult to feel with increasing abdominal fat in the abdomen (called visceral fat).

I can feel a strong pulse below my stomach. Does this mean that I have an aaa?

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

When I lie down I feel pulse at right side of abdomen, no pain fortunately. Does it mean something wrong with my right kidney?

When I lie down I feel pulse at right side of abdomen, no pain fortunately. Does it mean something wrong with my right kidney?

Not necessarily...: It is virtually impossible to palpate the kidney when doing an abdominal exam unless you have a large mass. It is possible to hear any murmurs from affected blood vessels though but you need a stethoscope for that. If you feel there is any pulsating structure in the right side of your abdomen I would have someone take a look and check you. Could be a normal finding as well. ...Read more

What does it mean if there is a strong rapid pulse in the stomach?

Many things: It could be you are stressed or had too much caffene. It could be you are thin and can easily feel the major artery in the abdomen. It could be an aneurism although you seem a little young for that. For peace of mind go to your doctor and have it checked. ...Read more
