Strong stomach pulse

For a while now i have had a strong pulsing in my stomach area. If I lie down on my back and put my hand on my stomach I can feel a very strong, pounding pulse. I am a very thin person, around 116 pounds and 5'11 tall. I searched this on google and read about aortic aneurysm. I also have pain in that area, especially if i push down even a little bit. I had an ultrasound of my abdomen in november and it was normal. I am still worried about this but my doctor told what i'm feeling is normal. Iam a 17 year old by the way. Can anyone give me some advice? should I have an ultrasound again?

This is not uncommon in skinny patients.  You should be reassured since the US is normal.  I would not be worried about this at all.
