Dear XXXX,

Thanks for contacting Healthcare Magic.'

Intermittent peri-umblical pain means it is a small intestinal pain meaning that the disease causing pain appears to be in small intestine.

I am not sure what endoscopy has been done on you. If only upper endoscopy has been done, then you may also need a lower endoscopy / colonoscopy. Ultrasound is generally normal in case of small intestinal diseases. A CECT scan of abdomen will be better.

If even after these investigations the cause is not found and the pain continues to trouble you then you may undergo an enetroscopy, which is endoscopy of small intestines.

Similar pain can sometimes be there due to worm infestation. If you have not taken deworming medicines then you should take these on weekly basis for 3 weeks.

Meanwhile you can take some anti-spasmodic medicines for symptomatic relief of the pain.

Hope my suggestions help you.

Best wishes,

Dr Dinesh Singal
