Thank you for making enquiries through Health24. It is a pity that you
did not try to provide some additional information, e.g. is the pulsating
feeling in sinc with your heartbeat? Is it constant or only when you sit, lie,
walk, etc? You also did not indicate where in your abdomen you feel the
pulsation and whether your abdomen feels rigid.
I would, however, suggest that you urgently make an appointment with
your doctor to have this investigated. There could be a simple answer to the
pulsating feeling, however, it may also be something much more serious like an
aortic aneurysm which, if untreated, may have serious consequences.
During the physical examination your doctor
will examine your abdomen. If you have an abdominal aortic aneurysm, he/she may
notice a mass near your stomach. Your abdomen may feel stiff or rigid, and
there may be a rhythmic, pulsating sensation within the abdomen. This pulsation
can feel similar to a heartbeat. (MCH).

advice. Health24 and the expert accept no responsibility or liability for any damage or personal harm you may suffer resulting from making use of this content.
