Abdominal pain: The association with constipation makes a likely connection between the two. Treat your constipation with daily Restoralax or Lax a day as well as a diet high in fibre and juices. If this fails to treat your problem; and if you are vomiting, the pain becomes worse, you have fever or blood in your stool; be checked. All the best.

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.

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.

LUQ pain could be splenic etiology. Epigastric could be pancreatitis, ulcer or other gastric etiology. If persistent, worsening you should see PMD for history, exam and labs.

Abdominal: Abdominal pain elicited by palpation and related to meals could reflect possible peptic ulcer among other things. It would be wise to have your physician obtain a thorough history and exam and decide on a proper course of treatment or appropriate referal to a GI doctor if deemed necessary. For now, at least, try to avoid spicy, acidic, and heavily seasoned foods; don't eat large or bulky foods within several hours of lying down; cut down on foods or drink high in caffeine content (coffee, tea, cola, chocolate, mountain dew, etc.). If not medically contraindicated with the meds your on (check with pharmacist) you may want to consider Prilosec otc while your waiting to see your doctor.

Abdominal pain: The location of your pain means it my either be your colon or your ovary. Are you constipated? Last period? Fever? You are a bit young for diverticulitis but it is a possible cause that would lead to left lower quadrant pain, as would an ovarian cyst. Kidney issues usually come with urinary complaints and back pain. If pain intensifies, see a doctor, abdominal pain can be many things.

Pain- hard to explain- about 1-2 inches right of belly button. Occurs for few mins, once-twice weekly for two months now. Happens without eating too.

Abdominal pain: Given the info you've provided, recurrent abdominal pain is not uncommon and often benign. Irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) is a diagnosis of exclusion, so we can't say this is ibs without a more detailed workup. But my best advice is to keep a good diary of the "triggers" that cause the pain. E.G., is it associated with stress? Is it more often in the morning or after certain types of foods, etc.

Left sided pain: This is a tough one without more information. Left lower quadrant pain in a 64 year old may be diverituculitis. This most likely would have fever and nausea along with it. Other possibliities include abdominal wall injury or trauma, hernias, gynecologic problems, kidney stones, aneurysms, infections etc. Probably best to see your doctor if it persists.

For the last two days I have been experiencing pulling and pinching in my lower left abdomen. It is the left and lower than my belly button.

Nonspecific: No specific diagnosis can be attached to this. Most likely an abdominal muscle problem. Could also be GYN related, a rare type of hernia (Spigelian), diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and even an umbilical hernia. Best to get a more complete evaluation with your primary care provider, the timing depends on duration and severity of symptoms. Hope this helps!
