    I am a man and my stomach is jerking. It feels like my wife's stomach when she was pregnant and the baby would kick. What could this be?

    Hi there, LIZ -

     

    I know this is a very old question and you've probably long ago discovered the issue with your stomach, but I did want someone from our staff to answer you!

     

    I'm only a layperson and can't diagnose your issue, but after doing some reading I've found that many people experience these, and they are usually simply the stomach or bowels moving in a rhythmic way.  Abdominal aneurisms are incredibly rare, particularly if you're under age 60. If you're worried, your GP should be able to do an exam and listen for differences blood flow and feel for any lumps that might signal a more serious issue.

     

    Here are some links on reflux that might be helpful to you.  Be well!

    If your stomach has a pulse like a heart beat, please see your doctor immediately!!  It could possibly be an abdominal aneurysm, which is very dangerous.  Please call your doctor or see someone asap!!!!
