For the last while i have noticed my heart beat through my stomach. It is so noticable that i can watch it move. I first noticed it when lying down on my laptop about 5 six months ago, since then its happening more often. I am a 19 yo female who is average weight/height. I am concerened that this maybe something serious. But dont want to go to a gp as it kind of sounds silly. The only thing that i know is that i am anaemic and have to take iron tablets.

Thanks

You need to consider how much you weigh. If you are a thin person, the palpitations of the heart is a very common thing throught the wall of the aorta (Mildline Stomach Aread) and if you have a young strong heart this is also the same possiblity. I would just mention it to your doc and see what he/she says and maybe be able to put you mind to ease or find out at least what it is.

Stomach beating like heart and burning ..
.. I feel a heart beat in my stomach too and also I can see my stomach moving to the beat, its quite uncomfortable.. And sometimes i feel like my stomach is burning.. besides that ive been coughing for a year and have just been quite weak ever since the coughing started..
lately ive been getting terrible headaches and been dizzy.. and often after a meal my stomach hurts..
ive been to doctors concerning my coughing but they couldnt find anything. I got all sorts of pills, I even got pills for stomach acid and whopping cough...
Im so sick and tired of being sick! Sad .. and i have no idea whats wrong with me..

Ive always had a distinct heartbeat in my stomach. very obvious. if i lay down you can actually seem it beating. Im 5'8 and flux between 130-150 over the past few years. Im 140 and 6 mo. pregnant now and I can still see it. I have never heard anything strange about that. There is a major artery in there, so it makes sense that you would see a beat from there. I also can see my beat in my chest Wink Dont worry yourself. Ive spent a ton of time with doctors and none have ever said anything about it!

go see a specialist! An ENT (ear nose and throat) and an allergist. it is highly likely you have an undiagnosed food allergy or sensitivity. my daughter was coughing non-stop for like 6 months (we thought it was whooping cough). I took her to a Holistic MD and he said, shes probably allergic to milk. We removed just milk (not even cheese, or yogurt) the coughing completely stopped. can you imagine? 6 months of constantly coughing and illness and now she hasnt been sick at all in 4 months! She's 3 btw!

also, immediately start vitamin d at 6000 iu/day and vitamin c (double up on recommended dosage). Its almost impossible to overdose on either of those two vitamins. you need like 70,000 iu of vitamin d and even then, it just causes too much calcium absorption. Make sure you diet is healthy (i.e mostly veggies, plus protein, whole grains only). Eliminate white sugars, any and all artificial sweeteners, and caffeine. I have found most medical problems are literally cured once people stop eating processed foods and start eating healthy and taking vitamins.

I'm 22 and I have the same problem... I feel my heart in my stomach and I feel dizzy when I get up quickly. I do have exercise induced asthma and I am on a blue reliever inhaler and a white steriod inhaler so could that be what's causing this?

Strong Pulse In Abdomen And Correlations To Heart Disease
First off, I'm not knocking anything anybody else is saying. The world is not black and white, it's a spectrum. Secondly, I'm not saying the people asking about strong pulses have heart disease, though I think it's likely some of them have minor or serious cardiovascular disease... But I'm not a doctor. I do know some people just won't die no matter what the medical profession knows to be the 'way it goes' for their particular problem or abnormality. Thirdly, I don't want to scare anyone, that's not my aim when I describe my experiences. I'm hoping to help if possible. Please remember that doctors are often wrong, misinformed, ignorant, and can miss crucial symptoms or misdiagnose. They're only human, limited by the lack of knowledge that prevails despite the great modern advances, and the human condition is vastly variable. Get a second, third, fourth and twentieth opinion if you need! It's crucial to be open-minded and research, research, research. Re-Search! There's ALWAYS more to learn, even for the experts and specialists.

The following paragraph is just my view and experience of severe heart disease. And that strong pulse in the abdomen features, though I'm not sure if it even plays a relevant role.

People shouldn't assume they are healthy just because they healthy eaters or are young. Heart disease and problems are the highest killer of children in australia under the age of 5. Many people are born with heart problems. I was, and have had a massive cardiac infarction, when I was 21. I've still got heart disease despite being a lot better than I was. I'm 25 at the moment. Sometimes I too see my pulse in my abdomen. I had such a strong pulse right before the heart attack that it shook my pants legs. Did you know that with the very first transplant patient they realized that irritability was a symptom of heart failure? And he only lived like a day beyond the transplant! I was raging mad before the heart attack, didn't know why, couldn't control it. Had never before had any trouble controlling my temper. Felt a bubbly feeling in my lungs or chest area each time I breathed in; now I know that was fluid in the pericardial sac caused by backwash from arrhythmia. I had congestive left side heart failure; when I was younger I had right side heart failure with oedema of the legs so bad I couldn't crouch without stretching the skin terribly. But lots of things can cause a strong pulse and irritability, fluid in the lungs, etc. so not freaking is important...

Also, fear and anger ---especially anger--- are causes of heart disease and other problems. All your body either works in harmony or it doesn't... There is no one system that goes down alone. Despite what the some GP's may say. My dad passes medicals with 'healthy as a horse' marks all the time --- and I got my heart problems from him! (Arrhythmia, atherosclerosis, abnormal shape). I had grandparents who had regular, severe angina without dying of heart problems or having treatment for them. I had NO angina or any other warning signs of heart attack before it happened... Only had those after, LOL. Anyway, just wanted to say a heart attack's not the end of the world... The majority of heart attack sufferers survive their first without help, and despite all the wonders of medical science, the heart is still better off left to heal itself in many cases. Obviously I'm not advocating totally boycotting medical care, though. Cardiovascular specialists can help a lot. A lot of it's diet, lifestyle, exercise, giving (and to a lesser extent receiving) love, release of anger and grudges, learning what a truly healthy meal and environment is... And no, it's not necessarily healthy just because it contains the five food groups! A transplant, pacemaker or drugs are not the answer for my case. If you have any symptoms of cardio/vascular disease, the best thing to do --- the inevitable thing, if you want to live --- is to look after yourself, love, and hope. Live healthy in every way. Being sick or disabled gets old fast, and the majority of it we do to ourselves.
