Re: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm in teenagers? Please help!
first of all,unless you have a very strong family history of vascular malformations,i would really seriously doubt that you,at your age and seemingly good health would really have a triple A going on.these usually develop over a long period of high blood pressure,not normally seen in the younger patients.it would be an extremely rare event for you to actually have one,really.a triple 'normally'(this can be slightly different depending on the patient and just where the A is)would present with more upper back problems or pain and possible chest pain,not the lower abdominal symptoms you are having.i am seriously thinking if anything,you could have something like endometriosis.this IS indicative given your particular symptoms,and much more common and likely.i had this too way back when.my pain,cramping and bleeding were just freaky.i finally was referred to a good OB/GYN and he knew almost right away that what i had wrong for the past three years(my symptoms started right about your age)he also found two 'chocolate' cysts(old blood that kind of turned cystic?) on my ovarys which he took care of with a simple laparoscopy type surgery(they just go in thru your belly button).
feeling your pulse on your stomach area if you are not a really heavy type person would be normal,or okay in most people.it all depends on your own anatomy.not every body part in every single person is exactly "textbook' there can be little variances.i cannot feel mine and i am currently under weight but others posted here(many) who stated they can feel theirs and are fine too.i just realistically don't think you have a triple A going on,it would be extremely rare in someone of your health and age.but,just to ease your own mind,if something doesn't feel right to you ever,always ask your doc about it.he or she can explain things to you.its better than assuming the worst when the worst is very unlikely to really occur.please let me know how you are doing hon, **
