Is this common to feel? Everything I've read online scares me to death. Especially since I've been having some heart palpitations lately and have been seeing my GP and cardiologist about it. So far, I've had an echo to look at the heart and aortic root which came back normal. I'm worried about this strong pulse in my suprasternal notch as I read that a young person like myself (27) should not be able to feel it. My biggest fear is an aortic aneurysm and this adds fuel to the fire. The echo didn't check my aortic arch so I'm panicking even more. I brought this up to my cardio yesterday and he more or less shrugged me off and didn't even feel for the pulse. That didn't sit well with me. I've been struggling majorly with anxiety over this and am in full panic mode.
