Re: Pulsing in my abdominal
Feeling a pulsation in your abdomen has nothing to do with what you eat or your GI tract. If it is regular, like your heartbeat, an abdominal aneurysm should be considered. It is an enlargement of the aorta, like a balloon that pulsates. This is usually found in middle age to older people who have high BP or vascular disease. It can be diagnosed by ultrasound, which is non-invasive. Sometimes extremely thin people can feel their aorta pulsate, even when the aorta is normal. An aneurysm is a serious situation and should be diagnosed, monitored carefully and fixed, depending on circumstances and size. If an aneurysm exists, it is essential to keep BP under good control to prevent rupture of it. Please get this checked out if you fit in the first category.
