When a heart aches or a tremor of the hands begins, a person accustomed to his manifestations of stress already knows what to do. But the symptoms may be different, sometimes even amazing and puzzling. When a nervous person has throbbing in stomach area, he does not understand what is going on, especially, if the symptom manifests itself for the first time. The patient can try to change position, drink a glass of water or massage his belly area.
However, if such a pulsation repeats regularly, it becomes the object of detailed study. Taking into account the fact that almost all neurotics and people with dystonia suffer from hypochondria, a feeling of pulses in stomach area can be a new cause for panic attacks.
Causes of Stomach Pulsations
Before you panic, you should carefully listen to the feelings inside the abdomen. May be the cause of your worries are banal intestinal gases that cause movement. However, if the rhythm of these movements (tremors) is quite uniform and does not pass when changing posture, you should consider the possible causes of your condition.
|Reason||What is going on|
|Nervous restraint||Nervous people often do not notice how they spend a long time in uncomfortable, clamped poses (for example, when they are once again looking for information about diseases on the Internet, and this can last for hours). Also, with stress and excitement, the muscles come to tone and clamp. This provokes a feeling of pulsation in stomach area. It is enough to take a sedative and lie down a little on the side to eliminate the problem.|
|Exacerbation of nervous sensitivity||During periods of Vegetovascular dystonia exacerbation or under the influence of long regular stresses, the CNS undergoes certain changes: it becomes too sensitive. In such cases, patients may experience symptoms that are not real, or respond particularly acutely to what is not really worth of any attention. Thus, a person’s stomach pulsates in the left, middle or right, because the cranial nerves, encircling the stomach area also too sensitive.|
|Neuralgia||When neuralgia the patient feels not only a sharp pain when inhaling and turning. Due to the fact that the transmission of nerve impulses is disorganized, feelings can be very different. One of the symptoms is a feeling of pulsation in stomach and sides. Neuralgia can be chronic and affect different parts of the body with exacerbation.|
|Overeating||People with dystonia and neurotics should not eat too much, although these categories of people often do not notice how much food they consume under the influence of stress. Food bursts the stomach walls, affects the vagus nerve, which in turn begins to emit impulses. Hypersensitive people, alarmists and neurotics often feel these impulses. By the way, extrasystoles also occur after overeating for this reason. Sometimes people can’t even define what is pulsing (heart or the membranes of the stomach).|
|Abdominal aortic aneurysm||With affected vessels, this disease can “sleep” inside for a long time and not make itself felt. But as soon as a person has a feeling of rapid pulsation in the abdominal area, it is necessary to consult a specialist. Usually pulsating aorta is easily determined by palpation, but sometimes, you need to do ultrasound to identify it. In addition to pulsation, the patient is also concerned about the feeling of heaviness in the belly and various kinds of discomfort. The lack of treatment will certainly lead to a rupture of the aorta, and this may end fatally without timely assistance.|
|Nervous tic||Everyone is used to the fact that a tic usually manifests on an eyelid. However, pathological twitching can occur in any part of the body where there are muscles. When imbalance of the Central nervous system, nervous tics are very likely. Sometimes they are felt in the abdomen because the nervous sensitivity in this area is more aggravated (or the patient is fixated on it).|
|Panic attack||In acute PA, a person has a variety of unpleasant symptoms that can also affect the abdomen. First, there are many false sensations associated with increased nervous sensitivity. It doesn’t matter where the stomach pulsates: right, left or at the bottom. All of these are psychogenic symptoms that will end as soon as the PA calms down. Also, in the process of adrenaline release, intestinal disorder begins (because according to the rules of nature, the alarmist must empty the intestines and quickly escape from danger). However, in the case of the intestines, the pulsation is uneven, and it is more like a tremor than a heartbeat.|
So, in some cases, it is enough to stop overeating and to protect yourself from excessive stress. After a couple of days, the stomach will start to behave differently and will not bother you anymore. But with the repeated symptom of pulsation, a doctor’s consultation is necessary.
