Apart from a slight stabbing pain in my stomach and sometimes back pain but not severe I don’t have any other symptoms! Im really a bit worried as I have noticed my stomach pulsating, could this be an aneurysm!? I’m 34 and over weight by about a stone! I only notice it pulsating when lying down
I am sorry for more questions -
1. Your age and gender please?
2. Is this symptom intermittent or consistent?
3. Are you a smoker?
4. Is there any personal or family history of abdominal aortic aneurysm?
5. Is there any personal or family history of Ehler Danlos syndrome or Marfan syndrome or connective tissue disorder or auto immune disorder please?
6. Are you a hypertensive or diabetic?

I’m 34 female, have high blood pressure but controlled by tablets since jan 2019 symptoms are intermittent tho I can see my belly pulsing all the time when lying down, no family history of them and I also would have a low platelet count! Usually sits around 80 but have had tests for that and it’s just an autoimmune problem
Thank you for getting back with the requested necessary information.

From your symptom analysis I feel that this is just a normal aortic pulsation which is felt by normal built individuals like you.

It is physiological and extremely common in general population.

I do not think we need to worry about AAA here. Please do remember that I am giving you my reassuring professional opinion after taking thorough medical history.

You do not have any risk factors either.

Be rest assured!

I did have an ultrasound about 3 weeks ago to check for gastro problems would any problems like that have been picked up?!
Ultrasound would have picked an AAA 100%.

No chance an USG will miss an AAA which is causing visible pulsations please.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
it Was all around my stomach area as I’ve been having indigestion and bloating!
It might be stress or anxiety associated irritable bowel syndrome...but definitely not AAA please.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Perfect! Thank you so much for your advice! It was just a bit worrying when I noticed it pulsating but just wanted reassurance that the ultrasound scan I had on my upper abdomen would have picked up on it! As it’s digestive problems I’ve been having! Many thanks
May I request for a 5 - star positive rating so that I can get my professional credit please!
