Aortic Aneurysm

Hi, I've been trying to figure out what's causing my back and groin pain. My first concern was an aneurysm. I went to the doc and did an abdominal ultrasound and that was normal. But, I read about a pulse near the belly button which I notice too. But, the doc said I should because I'm slim or something. Basically, if I lay down I can watch my stomach sort of jump up with each heart beat. Could this possibly be normal?

Re: Aortic Aneurysm

Yes, it is normal to see your pulse in your stomach especially if you are slim because there is a large artery that carries blood to your lower body there. Nothing to worry about I dont think but if it keeps u worried just to feel better i would go to a doc

Re: Aortic Aneurysm

Thanks. Yeah I've been to like 3 docs in the past few weeks. I've had everything from blood work to a colonoscopy done. I'm basically just guessing trying to figure out what the crap is wrong here. Maybe I'll try to get a cat scan for a wide range assessment.
