The Cause Of Frequent Throbbing Of The Upper Abdomen?
Hello .. I want to ask why my stomach, which is the top of the navel, is beating like a heart, it is beating so fast and every day?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In the abdominal cavity, there are large blood vessels that supply blood from the heart to most organs in the stomach. This blood vessel is called the abdominal aorta. These blood vessels will beat every time following the heartbeat. Under normal conditions, this pulsation of blood vessels will not be visible to the naked eye, except for example if your posture is very thin.
However, in some people, an abnormal bulge (aneurysm) can be found in the abdominal aortic artery. This aneurysm can make a pulse in the abdominal aorta without being clearer than in other people. It is not clear what triggers this aneurysm formation. However, many experts argue that this condition is related to smoking, atherosclerosis, hypertension, blood vessel disorders, mechanical injuries, aortic infections, to genetic disorders (hereditary). It could only be that, sufferers of abdominal aortic aneurysms can also feel pain in the back of the abdominal area close to the back.
In addition, it is also possible that a felt or visible heart-like beat in your stomach area is due to other factors, for example:
Muscle twitching, often occurs related to fatigue, for example because you have too much activity that involves contraction of the abdominal muscles Fetal movement (if you are pregnant) Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction) Intra-abdominal tumors Psychosomatic disorders, etc. Examination by a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine is very d to distinguish which beats in the stomach are still classified as normal, and which are dangerous. Chances are, some further examinations, such as X-rays or ultrasound, the doctor can also do so that the originator of your complaint can be identified clearly and given the right treatment. At this time, you should get plenty of rest first and minimize activities that cause your abdominal muscles to contract quite heavily, for example lifting or pushing heavy objects, running or going up and down stairs too much, and so on. Eat and drink regularly and are nutritious. If the beating in your stomach makes you feel very uncomfortable, try applying a warm compress to help the pulse subside.
Hope it helps ..
