it's like i'm breathing out of my stomach. it pulses.

I have been taking meds for my Gastritis and the stomach pain and heartburn is gone.

I'm just worried about this pulsing in my stomach. Is it normal?

I have an endoscopy and he said everything was fine expect mild inflammation of the stomach which the gastritis caused.

I'm going back for a check-up in about a week.

Should I ask him about this?

I also have a beating in my stomach area.  It could actually be the colon, at least in my case since I have IBS.

Staying away from stress helps.  Try to relax, I know it's hard not to worry.

I get the pulsing in my stomach too.  I can actually see it pulsing - it's weird.  I also have IBS. The entire GI tract is one system and when one part "breaks" usually there are consequences in other areas.  10 years ago I started to get acid reflux, drug reatment for the acid problem over time has led to other problems like IBS, weird sharp pains in the abdomen and back, stomach "pulsing", bloating, cramping, etc. 

I don't think that there is anything to worry about regarding the pulsing in the stomach.  My sense is that there is a lot going on in the gut when we have bad reflux and there may be inflamation causing the pulsing sensation.  Perhaps it is like when we injure a part of our body, cut a finger, etc..., the area pulses or throbs in an effort to heal.

This really mean GI told me that it was just my aorta since I'm thin.  He also laughed at me.  This is before another GI found that I have IBS.  Boy, was he wrong!

My husband thought he had an abdominal aortic aneurism, because his pulse was really strong in his stomach area. He went to the ER and they did a CT scan, which was normal. The doctor told him that some people just seem to have a stronger pulse there.
I feel it there sometimes too. Maybe with our GERD, we just have a bit of inflammation in that area, and that might make us feel our pulse there more.

well, even if the GI I went to was right and it was my aorta, he was still awful and mean because he claimed that i didn't have anything wrong with me and that I was crazy.  Then, a few tests later and another GI finds that he is wrong!!!  I was diagnosed with IBS, a severely twisted colon, and rigorous GERD.  So, he should buzz off!

I have an anxiety disorder, I have had fluttering almost everywhere on my body before I started talking medicine, It stopped when I started taking medicine but when I developed acid reflux I occasionally get it in my stomach as long as it doesn't hurt just stay calm, it's proably nothing
