Chances of development of an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
I am wondering how quickly these things can develop? I am a 25 year old male, and recently I have gone through a battery of test because I have had dizziness, fatigue, and other things. I have had a gallbladder ultrasound, as well as many EKGs, a stress test, and an echo. When they were doing my gallbladder ultrasound she also looked at kidneys, and my aorta in the abdomen. I assume they also looked at these while doing the echo. Both the echo and ultrasound were good (except for an enlarged liver which the gastro told me not to worry about). I had the gallbladder ultrasound about a month and a half ago, and had the echo probably about a month ago. I have had blood tests that were normal as well.
Today, now I woke up just feeling really weak and not well at all. I have not been able to eat today (some of which may be anxiety). I noticed, however, that I could kinda feel my pulse in my abdomen, and see it. I am obviously concerned about an AAA. I do not have any pain or anything. I just wonder if it is possible that in this month I have developed an AAA? I want to go to the doctor, but my parents think everything is anxiety, and I have already reached my coverage maximum for insurance. I want to get some opinions from people who know these (from experience) better than I do. Thank you!!
