Nerves Around Belly Button
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.
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
What muscles, ligaments, nerves connect the neck in front down to the belly button? What would pull/tear to cause lost of muscle mass in front?
Rectus abdominus: Seek treatment from a chiropractor, orthopedist or physical therapist.
I had a nerve block now I am lecking liquid from my belly button and its really red inside could this be from the nerve block?
No,: It is likely a benign omphalomesenteric duct cyst. Occasionally need surgical repair but usually are superficial and clear. See your doctor for confirmation.

If I lie on back and I arch my back I get a line of pain from bottom of belly button to the clitoris. It stops when I relax my back. Is it nerve pain?
It may be: It may be nerve pain and if it stops when your back I relaxed than stop doing it
Contact dermatitis: The most common cause I see for itching in that area is allergy to a metal, usually nickel. Most people wear a metal belt buckle, or have a metal snap and/or zipper on their pants, and if you're allergic to the metal in that buckle or snap, it will cause itching. Another possibility is that you may have gotten an irritating substance of some sort trapped inside your belly button.
Navel: The navel is a scar where the umbilical cord was once attached. Around 90% of people have a depression (innie) ; about 10% have a protrusion (outie). It is reported that a protruding navel develops because of more abundant skin remaining after the umbilical cord is separated. If you have a new or large protrusion - that could be an umbilical hernia which would merit medical evaluation.
Impaction?: People with deep 'innies' may slowly build up shedded old skin cells, bacteria and other 'lint' in the belly button (umbilicus), and it may become an impacted infected mass of material, that causes pain near the area, or foul odor, or abscess. That is one possibility. Of course, a careful physical exam should reveal the problem.
More details please: Belly-button (umbilical) pain may originate locally due to infection or herniation, or be "referred" from another abdominal location like the appendix. Signs/symptoms of concern include: local redness & drainage, umbilical bulging that can't be reduced with gentle pressure, fever, vomiting, change in bowels, generalized abdominal tenderness (suggests peritonitis), worsening pain. More details pls.
Many possibilities: Pain around the belly button can result from a local issue, like a hernia, or from things arising from inside the abdomen, including inflammation of part of the GI tract, like the small bowel or appendix. Things like a viral gastroenteritis (aka "stomach flu"), bacterial infection from appendicitis, obstruction, pancreatitis, gastritis and ulcer disease can be causes.
