Need eval: As a young woman this is potentially the area of your ovaries. There is possibility of cyst or other ovary issue.

Had sharp pain across belly button. Now have dull pain on left side thru back down to groin. Very painful. Can't see dr until Mon. What to do?

Pain: These symptoms may reflect a kidney stone or a kidney infection. It is atypical for kidney pain to reflect to the navel, but the other symptoms you describe suggest kidney and ureteral pain.

Dull pain left below rib cage next to belly button dull ache 2 weeks comes and goes when upright. Ideas? 36 healthy female.

This could be...: Many things. Including a pulled muscle or pain deeper in the abdomen. You may be able to tell if it is shallow pain (somatic) if you "push" out your belly several inches, then "suck" it in. If this causes local pain or if tender to touch, pain is likely a muscle and not worrisome. Pain around belly button could be adenitis (inflammed lymph node from recent infection) and should improve. Get good exam. ...Read more

Should I go to e.R. I've been having a dull pain on my left side about 2 and a half inches from my belly button, I constantly feel my side hurting when I walk and if I breathe in deep or out I feel it squeezing, I have never had this type of pain before

Abdominal: Abdominal pain can be serious, so it is always a good idea to see or call your doctor for instructions on wheter or not you need to be seen in the office or emergency room. All doctors have a 24 hour emergency line. However I always tell patients if they are in excrutiationg pain they should present to an urgent care or emergency room. Tas far as your question, appendicitis typically causes right lower quadrant abdominal pain, however this is not always true, and may be caus e a more generalized abdominal pain.
By the date of this post I hope your symptoms have resolved by now, or you were able to seek care. If not please do so immediately.
Good luck. ...Read more

My bf and I had unprotected sex but he pulled before he came. It has been 2 weeks. Few days ago, I feel dull pain when I press down on my belly button?

You expected this.: You and your bf must know that any responsible advice will be: never neglect to use protection until you are absolutely sure that it will be okay to become pregnant and that there is no chance of an std. It may not be likely that either has happened, but it is not impossible. The dull pain may not be related at all, but see your doctor, get tested as soon as recommended for preg & stds & be safe! ...Read more

I have a dull pain on my right lower abdomin also by my belly button also I have been sweating like crazy what could this be I mainly hurts when stand?

Need exam ASAP...: This would have to be assumed to be appendicitis until ruled out. Given your description, you should absolutely be seen in person via ER or Urgent Care for an abdominal exam, labs, vital signs, and possible imaging studies. Other clues to appendicitis would be nausea, lack of appetite, fever. If you have had your appendix removed in past, other problems should be ruled out. ...Read more

Late Period: Is 41 days your normal cycle, or are you saying that you were about 10 days late and then you bled, complicated by a brown discharge on day 9? It is still possible that you are pregnant and the bleeding represented "implantation bleeding." test yourself again in a week to be sure.

I've had pain to the right of my belly button off and on for 3 years sometimes it's sharp pains and sometimes it just a constant dull pain I have pinched nerves in my back I don't know if that has anything to do with it I also had kidney reflux from birth

Possible diagnosis: There are several possible causes to chronic right lower abdominal pain. Appendicitis and other bowel problems make you very sick, very fast so they get looked into first. Fever, vomiting and worsening pain needs more urgent evaluation. Otherwise, an outpatient visit with your doc to look for hernias, kidney stones, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, spinal disorders is okay. Good luck and be well. ...Read more
