Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms could be anxiety-related. Anxiety can manifest itself with not only psychological symptoms, but with physical symptoms also. If you are having recurrent such symptoms or having difficulty managing your stress, then I would advise you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome your problems.

Regular physical exercise, diet control and adopting a healthy lifestyle are also essential in your situation.

Wish you all the best.

General Surgeon Dr. M Y Shareef's  Response
Hi ! Any kind of anxiety/stress could give rise to such physical symptoms and signs. However, before concluding that the findings are due solely to stress, you should properly get yourself clinically examined by your family physician, who apart from measuring your blood pressure, may advise for an ultrasound/CT scan if he also feels the pulsation in your stomach as described by you. If the ultrasound comes out to be positive for some intra abdominal pulsating pathology, then he may refer you to a higher center.
If after excluding all organic disorders in abdomen where such pulsations can occur, symptoms persists, then I would advise you to get some counselling by a specialist Psychiatrist.
In the mean while, you must continue your working out routinely once declared fit by your treating doctor.
