Pain around tummy button for 3 weeks can be due to chronic appendicitis.
Get a simple Ultrasound abdomen and ask the radiologist to look for Appendix.Unless it is enlarged,it is not seen in ultrasound.
It is better confirmed by CT scan.
If all the tests are normal,you can go for Diagnostic laparoscopy where in the intestines are seen by key hole method.
Please stop all the drugs you are taking now.
Please take Antispasmodic like Dicyclomine ,Rabeprazole and antibiotic Cefpodoxime.
Take frequent small feeds
If you come back with any query further,i will clarify
Wish you good health
