    Possible AAA?

    Hi, I'm a 17 year old male and I feel like I have Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA). For the past 6 months or so I've been having pain from my stomach area down to my navel area in the aortic region. I also have lower back pain and leg pain. I cannot walk or stand for more than a few minutes without getting abdominal pain with leg and back pain. I also feel a constant pulse in my navel area and come sometimes feel a mass while laying down. I have also noticed that my legs and arms are more prone to numbness than before (pins and needles sensation). I feel that my blood circulation has gotten worse.

    Can someone help diagnose this?

    EDIT: I'm also experiencing some pain in my lower left arm.

    DID YOU ever find out what was wrong? I am having same type of symptoms. Pain below breastbone, sometimes down to just above navel. It is occurring more often and with less exertion. It started only occassionally when I would be on stairs or bending and such. Now just walking on left leg can set it off. And it is more intense pain, can also go into my back. This weekend my left leg is killing me, and anytime I walk on it I get this pain in the above areas. I have some basic tests on heart and a scope of my esphougas and except for slight gastritis, nothing has been found. But it is getting worse. I am scheduled for a ultra sound of ab, aorta and an echogram this week. But everyone seems to be ignoring the fact that pain has a lot to do with left leg. Could this be an aortic anuerysm? My family has a history of them, but they did not have these symptoms.
