 am I pregnant or bloating? my stomach is flat on top and get bigger towards bottom my stomach hurts a lot,my chest area ,around my right shoulder

Hard to guess: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

I have a bursed bellybutton on top. Upset stomic. Stomic is in pain and now I'm leaking brown liquid from my bellybutton. And my body hurts and weak?

I have a bursed bellybutton on top. Upset stomic. Stomic is in pain and now I'm leaking brown liquid from my bellybutton. And my body hurts and weak?

See a surgeon: Hi Frank 144. I'd suggest you go to the ER for evaluation. Sometimes women can get an infection of a part of the urogenital system that usually closes up and atrophies (its called a urachus) and can open up at the belly button and drain. Or it could be related to a hernia, a weakening of the abdominal wall. Either way, I would go right now. ...Read more

My stomach feels tender and uncomfortable frequently just below my belly button and usually off centre. Sometimes it turns into quite painful cramping?

Typically gas: Mid abdominal pain near the umbilicus (belly button) is most often associated with gas. The small intestines are the only structure near the belly button. When the intestines distend with gas, the stretching can be perceived as pain. Certainly other possibilities exist as well. Pelvic pain from menstrual cramps can possibly be perceived as higher abdominal cramps as well. ...Read more

Irregular , \u0026 normally flat stomach , got like beer belly \u0026 noticed left side of stomach is bigger then right side .very gassy

Gas distension?: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, & pelvic issues outside gut.
