I do feel like I'm being a little dramatic about it. But people are making it sound like I may have an aneurism and die.

That has been answered in the OP.

Also it's not by the sternum but yet 3 inches down from it. There is a slight bulge but not in a circular shape. Feels like a vein on steroids.

Go from your sternum down 3 inches tracing your rib cage. Draw a small 3-4 inch line towards your belly button in the shape of a vein (not really a straight line) and its raised roughly 1/4 in off my abdominal muscles.

Oh yeah, heard of that. Something about a loin something, only two ways to get it. Probably had a serious fall recently.

ETA: loin separation, loin tare, I forget.

Yea

It was an all day drinking affair and the moonshine came out. I haven't been drinking and have been on a strict diet. Well that shite crushed me.
Woke up on my bathroom floor.

It sounds just like you have an aneurism and will die.

Unless this aneurism lasts for 2+ weeks I would say you're right.

That shite is nothing to play around with, at the least I would go to an urgent care and have it checked out...on the basis that it could be an aneurysm.

Christ if it's an abdominal aneurysm it'd be the weirdest ever presentation of it. Abdominal aneurysms are usually felt as pulsating masses within the abdomen. They don't typically become a problem until they get to be bigger than 5 cm in diameter.

Anyway, alarming diagnoses aside, it sounds like you have an abdominal diastasis although it would be very uncommon in your demographic (assuming you are a young to middle aged male with no prior abdominal surgeries). Regardless, get it checked out by your primary doctor or see a surgeon. Probably nothing emergent unless it gets incarcerated or strangulated at quick point the pain should bring you to seek medical consult.

Here's a link on diastasis:

Good luck!

So me being a 28yr old male.

Chances of this being an aortic aneurysm are slim? It's more likely to be something else? I'm feeling like I should go to the damn hospital.

Rectus diastasis... Weakeness in abdominal wall, but not a hernia. Not much to do about it

You should.

We could give you a differential a mile long, but it won't do you any good until someone can actually see you in person.

If you puked your brains out its probably a muscle strain. Could take a few weeks to heal, but I'd get it checked out to be sure.

This kind of popped up like 2 weeks ago.

Should I go to the hospital now or am I good to get some sleep and see one bright and early?

I wouldn't go to the ER if you've already waited on it for 2 weeks. Trust me, that pisses the ER staff off to no ends and you won't get treated very well.

If you can stand it go in the morning and go to a clinic. It's cheaper and a shorter wait.

I mean there is no pain.

We did abs the other day at the gym and I'm a little tight but not in "pain" around my abs. They are just sore from workout. I will definitely hit the doctor in the morning but if you had to put a percentage on it being an aneursym or life threatening based on what I've said what would it be? 15%? 30% ?

<0.1%

If it were deadly it would have killed you by now.

0% aneurysm or life threatening, likely muscle strain, rectus diastasis, or lastly a hernia. See a doc and let them check it
