I have GERD but i also get this weird symptom of my stomach throbbing. It's not like a light pulse. it seems very heavy where i can break it up with my fingers and it goes away after about 15 minutes. Then it makes a gurgling sound. It has been a recurring problem for 5 years. It is also painful when this happens. It's like they are spasms of some sort. It it seems to happen on an empty stomach or when my food is digesting. I mentioned this to a few different docs and thold them my concern about it being an aortic aneurysm, but they weren't concerned. Because this isn't a constant thing, it never happens in front of the docs so they can't see what i'm talking about. Anyone else?
