Re: Could this be an abdominal aortic aneurysm?

The abdominal aorta is behind your intestines and you usually can't feel anything with a AAA...that is why it's so bad...silent and can't be felt....until it tears. So I doubt you could have felt it from the front as it lies over the spine in the back of the abdomen. But lots of arteries around to feel when you relax.

And I bet you've had lots of x-rays and tests on your digestive tract and they can see your abdominal aorta when they do them and would have spotted it by now.
