Hi, It's been awhile I noticed that from my stomach I get a random pumping feeling I want to know what does this mean? I realized that wheneve I drink either orange juice or apple juice I feel better and stops pumping. I do know that vitamin C fights infection. I was having symptoms of a kidney infection but I'm doing from this but I get radom pumping feeling in my stomach and I want to know what could this mean and what can I do? Please let me know soon.

Thank You,

Hi, Thank you for your reply. This pumping sensation I get in my stomach I notice this right before I'm falling asleep and it just wakes me up and the pumping sensation gets louder. I wasn't like this at all. I spoke to my endocrinologist and I mentioned I get symptoms of hypoglycemia and it's been more than a week now that I have symptoms of kidney infection. I'm thinking maybe it's related to any of this. What do you think of such thing? Monday I'm having urine test done and see what's going on.

Hi Melissa,
Is this pumping sensation, which you feel in your stomach, similar to a pulsing sensation? If so, what you may be noticing is the pulsing of your abdominal aorta.

The aorta is the largest artery in the body and is divided in four sections. The abdominal aorta begins at the diaphram and travels down through the abdomen.

It is normal to occasionally feel the pulsing sensation of blood traveling through the abdominal aorta. I cannot explain the correlation of drinking orange or apple juice and the cessation of the sensation. I do not think there is any relationship between the two.
