Hi!! Sorry that you didn't have your question answered the way you wanted before, I wonder if I missed it?
The beating in the abdomen.. I have the same thing.. but even when I'm not panicking.. if you lay on your back and look.. and place your hand on your abdomen... you can see and feel it beating. That's your heart actually, strangely enough. I don't know why but it just makes your abdomen beat.
I get the bad cramps and the gas and my hands and feet tend to tingle really bad, like almost when your foot falls asleep when you sit on your leg the wrong way for too long.. you know what I mean?
I checked my pulse rate when I noticed it too and it wasn't getting any faster and it was normal.
You're not dieing !!! *HUGS* We're all just worried that something is wrong... :)
I hope this helps.
