<br>Pulsating sensation in middle of chest, no pain. Cause for the symptoms?<br>

Hello, I was curious about a feeling I ve been having in my upper abdomen , kinda where my rib cage meets the middle of my chest . There is no pain, and I ve only began feeling it today, it s kind of like a bubbling or a pulsating sensation. I ll feel the bubbling in that specific spot for about 30 seconds to a minute and then it goes away. Happened probably about 8-10 times today. It happens when I sit down and while I m up and about. So any response to this would be excellent, thank you!

hello user
The thing you are experiencing needs to be more investigated, there are certain diseases in which the lower part of esophagus gets irritated so it starts more peristalsis which is felt as pulsating or bubbling sensation in your language !!

If you are feeling it more often then get your ultrasonography and other tests like barium swallow done, as per gastroenterologists need !!!

get well soon
