Brief Answer:
Any swelling?

Detailed Answer:
HI and thanks for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this soreness. It sounds a little strange and I will like to know if you have witnessed any swelling at the navel. If yes, that could mean a hernia and if not, a hernia is very unlikely.

Right now, I will suggest you take Tylenol to address the pains. Observe only and if this become repetitive, we will need examinations and maybe imaging to see what exactly the problem might be at the navel. If it doesn’t continue, it might have XXXXXXX nothing more than a pulled muscle around this area.

Keep me posted on your evolution. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.

Brief Answer:
Monitor only at this time!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed this information further. This isn’t so typical and monitoring further will help make the difference. I must assure you there is nothing of emergency at this time, reason why I can afford monitoring.

Keep me posted on any further eventualities. I wish you well.
