Abdominal aortic aneurysm?

Reply Thu 11 Dec, 2014 09:49 pm

I am a 16 yr old girl with a bmi of 22.3 and I sporadically feel a very strong pulse right above my belly button. The pulse can constantly be felt but sometimes is so prominent that it can be seen beating through my clothing. I also often feel fatigued and have very high cholesterol. As well as that I sporadically have very sharp pains on the side of my abdomen. I m not fuly aware of my family s medical history but my dad has high blood pressure, and my uncle has suffered from multiple heart attacks. I know that it is highly unlikely for me to have an aaa but could I have it? Should I get an abdominal ultrasound or is this all in my head?

Have you told this to your doctor?

If not, you should.

Please listen to ehBeth and see a doctor about this. I don't think looking online for a diagnosis is the safest bet.

You should talk with your parents and or your family doctor's office and let them know these symptoms and ask what they want you to do.
