    Pulse felt in Abdomen

    Hi Folks,

    Recently I have felt a good pulse in my abdomenal region. Maybe it has always been there and I just didnt notice it till now. If I lie on my back and press down firmly on my stomach I can feel my pulse beat very strongly. I know that you can feel a pulse in that area, but I am worried its pretty strong if I press on it. Should I be worried about a abdominal anuerysm? I mean I am only 26 in basically good health, is this possible?

    Thanks in advance,

    Sponsors Lightbulb

    Hi Ryan-Doesn't sound like anything to be too overly concerned about. A lot of people have very strong pulses. It's not the intensity of the pulse you should worry about, but rather, the rate of the pulse. If your pulse rate seems normal, then I wouldn't worry about it. Hope that helped a tiny bit to ease your mind...

    I have the same problem, but I don't know what it is either. I wouldn't worry about it.

    u should have a pulse in your abdomen, it's your aorta.

    Thanks all, I did go to the doctor and ended up having up to 3 doctors come in the room and check it out. The pulse was very very strong and I think it didn't help that I was very nervous about it. In fact you could see my stomach beating, it was quite wierd to say the least. Anyway they gave me a Ultrasound and everything checked out ok. And whats funny now is that I can barely feal the pulse....
