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

See a doctor ASAP

Abdomen
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.

What does it mean if I can feel a pulse in my stomach when I'm laying on my side or directly on my stomach?

Pulse in body

Heart_rate
Our pulse can be felt throughout the body, easier in some spots than other, e.g., the wrist or the neck. Feeling a pulse in your stomach is normal but for peace of mind and to rule out anything else you might sense see your doc. He/she will put your mind at ease.

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

Feeling Aortic Pulse

Open-uri20130908-18667-zwn8yr
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).

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

Many things

Rapid_heart_beat
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.

What does it mean when I push my stomach and I feel a pulse on my intestines n below my ribcage?

Abdominal aorta

Intestine
You are probably feeling your abdominal aorta pulsate specially if you are a thin person,however if you are not it could also indicate that you may have an enlarged aorta and in that case you should see your Dr to check it out and make sure you do not have something call an aneurysm(Abnormal enlarged vessel)

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

Maybe

Aorta
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.

No.

A fluttering and a strong pulse in your stomach is not a great indicator of pregnancy. The BEST thing to do is an at home pregnancy test.

I have a pulse in my abdomen/stomach and is even more prominent when I put pressure with my hand. What could this mean? I am quite thin by the way.

Aorta

Extremity-upper-hand
Aorta, main artery runs down abdomen, has a pulse. Very unlikely you have an abnormal dilation of it. Thin people can feel the aorta more easily.

What else could a pulse in my abdomen mean, besides an aneurysm?

Thin?

Aneurysm
In a thin person with a relaxed abdominal wall, a normal aorta pulse can be felt. Discuss it with your doctor who might answer the question by physical exam, but may recommend an ultrasound if there's a question.
