    Probably stress from the somatic symptoms of anxiety.

    Fat situated around the abdominal is also a stress symptom.

    It's like people with IBS get it bad when their stressed.

    Yes I get that a lot, my weight is okay, pretty lowish actually but I still have some belly fat there and I can see my stomach moving with my heartbeat sometimes, also because anxiety obviously causes digestive issues I see it moving, a bit like when I was pregnant and my babies kicked but I'm not, it's perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

    You aorta runs through your stomach so think of it as a positive sign, a doctor would want to feel the heartbeat there if they examined you, you are seeing it and it is perhaps a little more prominent because of your anxiety but this is a healthy heart pumping blood through that healthy aorta, it's a good thing rather than bad.

    Yo Ron! Yeah it's well normal, I did so much research Into this cause it freaked me out, I bet you only notice it when you're laying down. After 15-20 minutes you'll not notice it laying down. I feel one just under my ribs to the left, and another one just above my pelvic bone. It's VERY normal and I'm sure lots of people notice it but as with anxiety you're very tuned into every feeling you have and are more likely to notice it and or be freaked out by it.

    I'd be more freaked out if you didn't have a pulse tbh wink GL Ron.

    My stomach has been pulsating for the past 3 months, akin to my heart beat. Its most noticeable when I'm laying down, its locating in the upper right quadrant of my stomach.

    I dont think your excess body fat has anything to do with why you feel,little spasms or your pulse  at all. I hooe bcause you noted youre slim but have bouncing fat isnt that you have some kind of eating disorder. I only say that because you used the word bouncy fat on a slim build, if you do have an issue with anorexia or bulemia you  need to tell your gp immediately. They can help you. And would exolain the pulse or soasms you feel. I have no clue and not judging you it was how you worded that then that came to mind. 

    Otherwise i dont know where pulses are  located bit i wonder if theres one in that area where you are sensitive too. Maybe the vagus nerve but i do not know.
