In brief: Ultrasound

Not knowing your history and age it is hard to let you know the risk of you actually having an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Typically men over the age of 65 years who have a smoking history are at greatest risk. The best way to calm your fear and evaluate your aorta is with an abdominal ultrasound.

In brief: Relax and get screen

Abdominal aortic aneurysms rarely present as fluttering.
In thin individuals, it is very common to be able to feel or even see the aortic pulse. If you have any risk factors (smoking, family history, high blood pressure, high lipids, or diabetes), get a screening by your pcp or through community outreach ultrasound programs. Shearing abdominal, back, or groin pain warrant a trip to the er.
