Can the nerves aggravate the abdominal aortic aneurysm?
I just had an Ultra sound done for AAA (Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm) and waiting on the results. I have a healthy life style in every department. I have had this ball above my belly button since I was 5 yrs old and now I'm 37. It only comes up with nerves or when I’m upset. Can Nerves aggravate AAA since it seems that is the only time I get the pulsating ball in my stomach? Or can there be another reason for this pulsating hard ball that I need to look into it?
abdominal aortic aneurysm is common in men, smokers, those with a family history and high blood pressure. it increases with age which is the reason why it has become more obvious now. since anxiety can cause increase heart rate and blood pressure, that might cause the pulsations with your stress. hope that answers your question
