Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using Healthcare magic.

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

Many a time Pulsations do felt in different parts of body, arteries which carry pumped blood from heart do produce Pulsations. It is not related to any problem. Not to worry, in few patients presence of mass in abdomen and pressing over artery do produce these type of beating effect.You can get examined by physician and ultrasound scan of abdomen to rule out any mass in abdomen.

Hope I answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.

Wish you a good health.
