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...

Abdominal_discomfort
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.

A person with tummy pain between the belly button and the bottom of the rib cage can have a variety of problems. A doctor's examination is needed, unless the person is young & healthy, and the pain is mild & resolves quickly. Possible causes include: stomach acid problems, reflux symptoms, pancreatitis, gall stone related problems, abdominal muscle strains, some sort of hernia, shingles rash, etc.

I've had stomach pain above my belly button after finishing 2 rounds of Xifaxan for SIBO..what could be causing this pain?

SIBO? YOU SURE?

Stomach_pain
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...)

Can IBS and stress cause knotted stomach pain about 1 inch above belly button. This pain seems to come on during high stress times and lasts for days.

That can happen.

I would encourage you to look into destressing techniques like deep breathing exercises & progressive muscle relaxation. Tai Chi, acupuncture, meditation & yoga are also beneficial. If you efforts are not doing the trick, consider seeing a psychologist to work more on ways to handle stress. Take care.

Stomach pain 2 inches below right rib cage and 2 inches to the right of my belly button. I also have bloating and gas. There are two hard lumps underneath the skin which are painful.

Gallbladder or ulcer

Without knowing more, it is difficult to say what the cause is, however it can be related to your gallbladder (gallstones) or stomach (ulcer disease) especially if you are taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS like Motrin or Ibuprofen). You should contact your PCP to gather more information and possibly run some tests like an ultrasound. If you have fever/severe pain, go to ER.

What can cause stomach pain right below my belly button?

Many things

Intestine
There is not sufficient information to provide an informed answer. It may be as simple as flatulence to a malignancy. How old are your? When do you get the pain? Relation to meals or bowel movement? Change in Bowel habits? Palpable mass in abdomen? Relation to periods? If pain persists beyond two weeks, see your doctor.
