I've had stomach pain above my belly button after finishing 2 rounds of xifaxan (rifaximin) for sibo. What could be causing this pain?

SIBO? YOU SURE?: Sibo? Are you sure? It seems to be over-diagnosed currently...Was there any objective evidence for this or was it done as a trial? The latter is ok but it is important to undersand the premise of the therapy. As to the abdominal pain above umbilicus - do you have a small hernia? Please be seen by someone who will examine you (not order a ct scan...).

Stomach pain above belly button. I'm 20 and not overweight. I've had heartburn a lot before too. What could it be? It hurts more when I press it.

Impossible to say...: Lots of possibilities here--which require a physical exam & simple testing. Your symptoms may be related to the abdominal wall (superficial location) or internal (deep location); may be of gi, gynecologic, or musculoskeletal origin; may be serious or minor. With regard to heartburn, please re-evaluate your diet, consider an otc acid blocker (like Prilosec otc), & discuss response with doctor.

I woke up on tues w/ pain in my stomach threw up acid stuff on thurs now I still have pain in middle of stomach above belly button what should I do?

Get seen.: Abdominal pain lasting for more than 4 days is too long! Call your doc or get seen. IF the pain is constant, you are still vomiting, or have fever, dizziness, or black or bloody stools, go to the ER. If not and can't reach doc tonight, go to an UC tomorrow. No ibuprofen, aspirin or naproxen for now please!

I am having severe upper stomach pain, right above my belly button. This happens when I stand up, and/or move. It's fine when I'm laying down?

Hard to say: Without knowing your medical history, medication use, etc. Its hard to pinpoint cause. May be GI (stomach, intestinal, appendix or any of the organs in abdomen issues), Gyn (ovaries), muscular. May due to food or liquid you ingested. May be a serious issue or benign. If it is severe pain, better to seek immediate medical attention. Don't wait.

My stomach, above belly button, has been gurgling frequently lately. Not hunger pains. What causes this? Should I be worried about parasites?

See a doctor: Impossible to know what is causing intestinal 'gurgling', but unless it is bothering you intensely suspect it may be related to your diet or a transient issue that will resolve itself. The major parasite you are likely to get in usa is giardia (a protozoan) which can be diagnosed easily. Very few people in this country have "worms" unless there is a very specific risk factor.
