Strange pulsating feeling in lower abdomen??

I have been having left lower abdonimal pulsating/vibrating feeling for about 5 days now. I also have lumbar problems with pain daily. I have no idea what this feeling is and need some info. I did a search on abdominal aortic aneurysm and it fits the description. Any advice?????

I recently had a c-spine surgery 2/25/2004.

This kind of thing really cannot be diagnosed over a message board. I would advise seeing your doctor and potentially having an ultrasound of your abdomen. Other people having similar symptoms should not either scare or make you feel more secure.

I agree with you 100%. I called my Pcp and he told me to call my surgeon. I will demand a referal for a sonogram. I also called my gyn just in case it's adhesion realted. What I did learn today was the the aorta branches off at the L4 and that is where I have back injuries. L3- S1. Could explain the intense pain I have been having.

Thanks for you reply

If you think it could be an aortic aneurysm I wouldn't wait to get to a doctor. Often there are no signs although some people experience abdominal pain.

Re: Strange pulsating feeling in lower abdomen??

I have a friend who has had this pulsating in his left lower side for years.
He has no pain with it but it is driving him nuts because he says it is always
pounding no matter what he does.
I know he has had some tests and trys to ignore this but he says it is just annoying.
So if you ever find an answer I would sure like to know what they tell you so I can relay it to him. I don't think he can get this on his web tv.
