Forum Name: Diseases of the Aorta
Question: Aortic problems
|frustrated - Wed Sep 01, 2004 1:27 am|
Ive recently experienced abdominal pain that gets worse when i lay down ive had several ultrasounds. My reason of conern is that my heart beat can be seen and felt more towards my stomach and it is a very strong beat.... if i had the ultrasounds it would show if there is a problem with my aorta like an aneurysm right?

Yes frustrated, it would be clear in most cases where an aneurysm leads to visible pulsations.

You don't have to be concerned. The pulsations of the aorta can certainly be felt and can normally be seen if the person is thin enough.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
