Went Dr. Yesterday tested H. pylori. Said con't Prilosec 2 months. Can stomach aches morning below belly button be related to ulcer or acid reflux?
Probably not related. Pain from reflux or an ulcer is most typically felt in the upper abdomen near the rib cage or just behind the breastbone. Pain in the lower abdomen below navel would be a very unusual place to feel it. Hard to say what might be the cause however as details are few. Best to mention this to your doctor.
9 year old has stomach aches around belly button. Dr says reflux and prescribed PPI but doesn't help. Could it be something more serious? Not H.pylori
Maybe. It depends on how long you've been on the medication and what you're doing to watch his diet to make sure that the food doesn't have a lot of acid or upset his stomach in anyway. Giving him a bland diet for 7 to 10 days would be beneficial. If the pain gets worse or doesn't get better than return as soon as possible to the doctor that prescribed the medication. Good luck.
