Exam needed: Most likely a small umbilical hernia with omentum caught in the muscle defect (causing pain). Not urgent, unless pain gets worse.

I've been having a serious sharp pain in my belly button that greatly worsens when i bend over or sit up from laying down or roll over what's wrong!?

Possible hernia: A hernia is a weakness in the abdominal wall, and this commonly happens in the belly button area. It can allow your intestines to be pushed out under the skin, and it sometimes gets stuck inside the hernia and causes pain. If it gets stuck for a long time, it can cause a portion of the bowel to die which is a life-threatening emergency. Please see your doctor for an exam. ...Read more

Believe or not: If the docs took an x-ray and found poop stacked up in your large bowel and or the large bowel dilated with poop, it is good evidence you are constipated. Whether or not this is the only reason for your pain is something only a hands on exam & test review would find. If you don't believe them get a second opinion, but arrange for the tests to be available for that review. ...Read more

I recommend that you be evaluated by an abdominal surgeon who will take more history and perform a careful abdominal examination. Any appropriate tests will be ordered. ...Read more
