Have been having a dull aching pain about 2-3 inches left of belly button. It's constant for the past hr and happened yesterday as well. Why is this?

Have been having a dull aching pain about 2-3 inches left of belly button. It's constant for the past hr and happened yesterday as well.  Why is this?

Need eval: As a young woman this is potentially the area of your ovaries. There is possibility of cyst or other ovary issue. There are not many other organs in this area except for your colon- so if some thing was twisted or if there was a gas pocket you can get this type of pain. Recommend you see pcp if pain persists. ...Read more

I was laying down & felt a dull pain about 2 inches left of my belly button just curious what is located there and what the pain may be from? Thank u

Depends: On the surface the discomfort could be from an umbilical hernia or from a sore strained muscle. Internally there are too many structures to guess the cause of pains without a much more detailed physical exam & medical history. ...Read more

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. The other possibility is an ovarian cyst problem or pelvic tube infection. I recommend you be evaluated sooner than Monday. ...Read more

My stomache feels like its burnin and theres dull pain under my right rib cage and rt side but also on left abdomen hurts too and by belly button?

Its hard to read: this and give enough information, but with that combination of complaints and that you also list diarrhea and nausea amongst your conditions you should be seen in person by a medical provider. Quizzing you on scope, intensity duration and frequency of your symptoms and examining you in person is likely your next step. Again its hard to be complete in 400 characters, but go get seen ...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
