Okay so recently when I push on my stomach, speciffically at my belly button or just to the right of it I feel a beat and its somewhat hard.I can feel it about 4 inches in length going down my belly. This part of my stomach is beating wayy more prodominiately than if I feel a regular beat anywhere else on my body. Buts it is definiteely freaking me out. I'm thinking either pregnancy or something serious however I just had. My period at the beginning of this month. Ever since I pushed on it, its hurting. Do you know what this could be?
You seem to experience most likely flickering of abdominal muscle and should resolve on it's own when the muscle is given adequate rest. Though the exact diagnosis can only be made after examination by a doctor, if it isnt painful and stops on it's own in few hours to a maximum of two days then it is more likely due to muscle twitches. It can be a side effect of drug abuse,underlying mass,anxiety etc.The possibility of pregnancy seems to be less.
If it persists or you develop any pain or swelling or any new symptom then please seek prompt medical consultation.Avoid any self medication and drink lots of water.Have healthy balanced diet and take a good sleep.
