Pain 3 inch above belly button had camera down and doc told me nothing to worry about but still in pain ?

Dismissive doctors: tend to have unhappy patients. You may worry about whatever you'd like, but at least your worries should be properly addressed. If you do have functional dyspepsia, there are treatments that can be quite effective, including amitriptyline. I urge you to make some inquiries. ...Read more

I have pain about 3 inches above my belly button lately after I eat. I have had my gallbladder out for a year.?

I have pain about  3 inches above my belly button lately after I eat.  I have had my gallbladder out for a year.?

Unclear: That is nonspecific, and doesn't sound dangerous. It could be a small "epigastric" hernia, or could be a hernia related to one of the incisions from you gallbladder operation. Start out with a physical from you primary care provider. ...Read more

Stomach hurts three inches above belly button, what does this sound like?

Stomach hurts three inches above belly button, what does this sound like?

Gastritis: If your pain is in the middle of your abdomen just beneath your ribs then it is likely stomach pain, or a gastritis issue. Especially if your pain is associated with eating. If you try an antacid like mylanta and the pain improves then that is almost diagnostic of acid type irritation. ...Read more

Gastritis/Dyspepsia: Your symptoms appear to be consistent with possible inflammation of the stomach lining given the location reported. When the lining is irritated nausea, bloating and discomfort can occur as well which is referred to as dyspepsia. Talking to your doctor about treatment options is recommended and avoiding spicy foods, greasy foods, caffeine, cigarettes, and alcohol is advised. ...Read more

What is this i found a couple of really small bumbs that are the same color as my skin. One on my stomach about three inches above my belly button and one on this middle of my chest I am very nervous about this can you please tell me what it is

Skin : Skin problems and rashes can be tricky to diagnose even with an exam and almost impossible without one. Off the top of my head, you could have developed moles, warts, or molluscum contagiosum (a virus that goes away in 6-18 months) or it could be something more concerning. If they are not bothering you, you should show them to your doctor at your next visit. If they are changing, multiplying or worrisome to you, then make an appointment for your doctor to take a look. Good luck! ...Read more

Burning sensation just three inches below belly button , two medical centers can't find anything ! what is it ! please help . Thanx

Seems to be pain.: Sometimes we can't find a specific diagnosis other than pain. If you have been seen at two medical centers I am not sure you will find a better diagnosis on line. This sounds as though it is neuropathic pain. When will they move on to treatment? ...Read more

I have pressure in my lower abdomen about three inch below my belly button.     This is constant dull pressure, does not change with urinating.?

Doctor can evaluate: There are many things in the abdomen. A primary care doctor can evaluate to see if it is constipation, another bowel problem, a liver or gall bladder problem, a kidney problem, or some other abdominal issue. The doctor may order some blood and urine tests, and may order an abdominal scan such as an ultrasound scan to look inside the belly. ...Read more
