Heart beat in abdomen, Help!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi I'm a 16 year old male and about 2 weeks ago i noticed that when i press down just above my belly button i can feel my heart beat fairly strongly. This heartbeat becomes very strong when working out. Sometimes, whenever I am lying down and apply pressure to the affected area, my abdomen makes funny sloshing and squishing sounds. The only pain I have is that occasionally when i press fairly hard just under my belly button it gives off a radiating pain. I am scared i may have an aneurysm, please help!

    part of your aorta goes into your abdomen and it is common to feel it pulse there sometimes. go have a doctor check it out though.
