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. ...Read more

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?: 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...). ...Read more

Low funct. gallbladder (30h; Dr says remove; prefer not prematurely; stomach pain is now just above belly button  Still caused by gallbladder?

No one can answer.: Impossible to say, but if the pain is the same as when you went for the testing, it seems likely. If it is different (location, quality) then it might be something else, but typically one diagnosis at a time in the abdominal area in an otherwise healthy person. Most often, GB pain is in the right upper quadrant and you also feel it in the shoulder. Also it hurts if you press on the area. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
