pulsating in upper abdomen?

Hi. I'm a female in my mid-thirties, relatively healthy and active. Lately I've been feeling sporadic pulsating in my left upper abdomen just inferior to my 12th rib. There is no mass there, from what I can tell. It's not painful. I'm hoping it's just a muscle spasm, but concerned it could be an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Any thoughts?

Hi:

"But concerned it could be an abdominal aortic aneurysm".

Concerned no doubt.

And since there is no way to know (as one can only guess or speculate) what is going on for sure via the Internet, please consult with a/your doctor promptly.

Additionally, of the different types/kinds of heart conditions, some which can occur at ANY AGE, various symptoms may/can be acute (occurring suddenly), be chronic (occurring over a long period of time), come and go (be transient, fleeting or episodic), or even be silent.

ALWAYS be proactive in your health care and treatment. Most important, communicate/interact well with your doctor(s).

Best of luck down the road of life. Live long and prosper.

Take care,
