Belly button stabbing pain then had to go #2 normal bowlment can this be due to my stress / anxiety / depresion / panick attacks?

After going #2,: Did the pain go away? Fecal matter passes very close to just under the belly button on "final approach." This moves things around--not just colons, but muscles. If this continues, consult a gastroenterologist. If this is related solely to bowel movements, it us unlikely that stress/anxiety/depression alone would account for this condition. ...Read more

Get 2nd opinion: Since we have no idea as to what kinds of tests you underwent, it is hard to give you any guidance. Recommend that you stop Advil (ibuprofen) since it may only make the problem worse. Hyoscyamine slows down the bowel but that may not be desirable either. Have you have an endoscopic exam, abdominal CT etc? ...Read more
