Some possibilities..: Feeling a knot of tightness near the belly button... Probably not in the skin, so the next layer is the muscle... Maybe a muscle strain from sit-ups or other exercises.

I run regularly, but when running today I felt a twisting/knot - like pain right below my belly button to the right. It's tender to touch.

Few possibilities: My guess is that it is an abdominal wall muscle strain, and it will resolve within a few days. Perhaps it will resolve after your next bowel movement. Some more serious internal disorders would be appendicitis, diverticulitis, twisting or volvulus of the intestine. If the pain is associated with fever, vomiting, diarrhea, very severe colicky pain, then obviously check with your doctor. ...Read more

I'm having occasional pain in my belly button region. I had my gall bladder removed 4 weeks ago. Feels like a small knot right above the belly button.?

Wound still healing: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal via scope) requires several incisions/holes, one of which is through the belly-button (see picture). Scarring is something you only get to see on the outside, but occurs inside as well. The healing may not be complete and internal organ/intestine rubbing on it on/off which may cause some discomfort. As long as it getting better, u r ok. Good luck. ...Read more

3days ago i had a bowel movement an got nausea since then i've had constant nausea and a tight knot feeling about 2fingers above belly button?

Acid-peptic disorder: This sounds like about the right location for acid-related stomach lining irritation. I'm glad this is "just" nausea and a tightness in the epigastrium rather than vomiting blood and stabbing pain through to the back. Reasonable initial treatment would be any acid-reducing medication like pepcid, zantac, (ranitidine) prilosec, or prevacid. Avoid trigger foods like chocolate, coffee, caffeine, and tobacco. ...Read more

It : It sounds as though your ingrown hair became infected and turned into a boil.

Boils usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria.

Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should see your doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develop fever, chills, or feel ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately. Also, spreading redness and swelling around the area means the infection is worsening and you may need antibiotics.

You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. ...Read more
