Suggest remedy for soreness in navel after exercising
yes it could
if you feel it on the abdominal wall only then it's probably a strained abdominal muscle. If you feel it on the upper part of the leg too (where it joins to the pelvis) then a leg muscle may be involved as well. Both types of muscles act when you try to sit up. Perhaps you've done more than your muscles could cope with.
If it's the leg then 4-6 weeks will be required for recovery. If it's the abdominal muscle it may take more time (sometimes much more time!). Be sure to avoid any moves that cause pain or discomfort and visit an orthopedics specialist for clinical examination and confirmation.
Keep in mind that such injuries do not heal easily because these muscles are involved in many everyday activities. The age plays a big role in healing. Young athletes recover sooner than older individuals. The injured site may be more 'sensitive' in the future (that is prone to new injuries).
I hope you find my comments helpful!
