Stomach pain around navel for 2-3 days. Worse when standing up. Better in direct heat and when lying down. Appetite and BMs unaffected. Is it serious?

Stomach pain around navel for 2-3 days. Worse when standing up. Better in direct heat and when lying down. Appetite and BMs unaffected. Is it serious?

Maybe, maybe not: It's hard to tell. A problem with your appendix can be very serious and that pain usually starts around the navel. It usually gets worse, however and eventually moves to the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. It is also associated with worsening appetite, nausea and low grade fever. You should be evaluated by a doctor. ...Read more

My daughter took omnacortil 40 on dr's advice just one month back & now she is having an acute stomach pain in just above her navel area. She is 17yr?

My daughter took omnacortil 40 on dr's advice just one month back & now she is having an acute stomach pain in just above her navel area. She is 17yr?

Likely NOT related: Omnacortil is branded steroid called prednisolone, a commonly used medication which has powerful antiinflammatory effect. Typically it used for a short period of time, 3-7 days range. It has a relatively short half-life and thus out of the system quite quickly after last dose. As a result, I would not pin this med as cause of her abd pain. Get her evaluated as soon as feasible. Good luck. ...Read more

I'm having low back pain and moderate-extreme stomach pain 3-4 inches above navel. Please advise?

Spine pathology: Is typically not associated with abdominal pain (rather, lumbar spine pathology more typically can cause radiating pains into the legs). Based on your description, it sounds like the abdominal pain is the predominant complaint, therefore I suspect that you have abdominal pathology which may be causing your back pain. I would definitely recommend that you see a physician for evaluation. ...Read more

I've had stomach pain, bloating and gas for 3 days now. Pain comes in waves, starts at navel and irradiates downwards. Very painful. What can it be?

SoundsLikeAVacation: Three days is long enough to wonder why. Would be hard to pin-down exactly the cause, but the symptoms are enough to justify a visit to your friendly local Urgent Care for an exam and possibly a test or two. I'd assume you've been in no mood to eat or drink but keep in mind that fluid loss makes everything feel worse, so at least try frequent small sips of water or diluted Gatorade. ...Read more
