Are you pregnant?: Abdominal pain that is severe requires urgent examination to rule out serious causes (kidney infection or stone ectopic pregnancy ovary problem). Especially if you do a pregnancy test and it is positive and may need to be done rapidly. May also be muscle pain but need to quickly sort out other serious first. Please see a doctor urgently

Severe pain: near umbilicus that hurts to press on. Please seek emergent evaluation to insure that you don't have a surgical abdomen.
