Re: heartbeat in pit of stomache

i sometimes do too. a doc once told me that a doc can tell where and if there is pain by finding a strong pulse in that area. i would guess the blood goes to that area?

just interesting.

Re: heartbeat in pit of stomache

I think everyone is different and some people are just more sensitive in some areas than others. You may just be more sensitive in that area.

You have blood flowing in a very large artery with every heart beat all the way down your abdomen to both legs.
Other people feel pulses in odd places in the body.

Re: heartbeat in pit of stomache

Hi,

Basically, this major artery is called the aorta and the part that runs all through your belly is called the abdominal aorta, so it is not really surprising that you may be able to feel it sometimes.

Interestingly, in Japanese style acupuncture a lot of abdominal diagnosis is used. When you do this, one of the things that you feel for is whether there is a pulse present around the belly button.
