Hi I have been experiencing pulse above my navel. one thing about me is that I am a hypochondriac and I also have gastritis . I started noticing the pulse during one of my gastric episodes. have been burping alot too. Dec 2011 I had an abdominal ultrasound to check for Aortic Aneurysm and it can out negative and since 2010 almost every year i have been having a full abdominal ultrasound and everything is okay. is the pulse something normal for me.

Dear friend, welcome to HCM!

It is common to have pulsations felt above the navel in thin lean individuals.
Since USG was normal, there no worry about the aneurysm.

If you are thin and/ or anxious, you may feel pulse of the abdominal aorta easily. Neglect and be happy.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck!
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Thank you!
