I am bleeding from my belly button. My stomach hurts and is hard. I coughed up blood too. For a while I had chest pain and hard time breathing.

Don't risk it: Do not risk those symptoms, you should be urgently evaluated for the coughing up blood and chest pain. Without knowing much about your medical history of family history, it would be a safe bet to go to an emergency room immediately and be further evaluated by an emergency physician. It is not worth sitting on it and having a poor outcome.

Chest pain eval: I think we can say that your evaluation is not done since no explanation was found. If you're still having chest pain, more eval is needed. Consider a cardiac stress test, a test for gastroesophageal reflux, a test for the gastritis germ h pylori, a test of your oxygen saturation, a test for cardiac and other muscle proteins, and tests for rheumatologic conditions (ana, esr, crp, etc.).

See a cardiologist: Your symptoms are much more than explained by costochondritis. You need to get a bit detailed evaluation by a cardiologist before dismissing it as mere costochondritis. Hope that you find answers to your problems soon.

Chest cold: Your upper respiratory infection has spread to your breathing passages and now you have acute bronchitis. There may be a component of asthma as well, even if you've never had asthma before. If you're uncomfortably short of breath, you should go immediately to an ER for prompt treatment. If it's just a nuisance symptom, you ought to at least see your doctor tomorrow to be examined.

Nausea, chest pains, stomach pain, rumbling in stomach, difficulty breathing, headache, bubbling feeling in stomach, back pain, side pain, what is it?

Anxiety: I understand your concern. Stresses of hip osteotomy, gall bladder surgery most likely have caused anxiety. Other stresses-relationships, concern about pregnancy and finances can cause various physical symptoms. It is not what you eat it is what is eating you! Please see a psychiatrist for diagnosis and treatment of your condition, .
