might have aortic artery aneurysm?

I highly doubt that, but this is why Im here. Im very young...17...skinny...but I can feel a huge pulse by my AAA. Is it possible just to be my pulse and not an aneurysm because Im so skinny?

Re: might have aortic artery aneurysm?

At your age,unless there is an extremely strong family hystory,i mean strong,of any type of arterial malformations or heart problems,i would say that the overall likelyhood of you actually having a triple A is very very slim at best.since you are that skinny,you can probably find alot of areas where you can pick up much stronger pulses than most people just because of the lack of fat between the pulse points and the surface of the skin.I DO think that you are just feeling a very normal pulse.

anytime you have questions about your health or any concerns at all that something may be wrong,just talk to one of your parents,really.if there was something that one of my sons was having real concerns about,well,I would really really want to know,you know?i think you are most likely in very good health.Try not to dwell alot on things like this,K?**
