heart beating in stomach?

Yesterday and a few days ago while laying flat in bed, I could feel a pulsating like sensation around my stomach area and about 2 inches above my navel.

It felt like my heart or something, it was very odd, I could put my fingers on it and feel it.

Is this something I should be worried about?

Re: heart beating in stomach?

Most people can feel their abdominal pulse every once in awhile.


However, if the pulse is constant, comes back frequently, grows stronger, or you have a family history of stroke, aneurysm, or you currently smoke and/or have high blood pressure - then you need to see your doctor and have them rule out abdominal aortic aneurysm. The screening test is a simple ultrasound, I had one after my father died of AAA a few years ago. The test takes 5 minutes. Caught early, AAA can be surgically corrected.

Same here my mother could feel my fathers' and he had an aortic anuesyrm . Have it checked out just for your own piece of mind. My father had one and it was caught in time. He is alive and healthy today.

Re: heart beating in stomach?

thank you for the replies I have never heard of that before.

I haven't been to the doctor for anything in like 2 years so maybe I should go.
