Frequent sharp pains below belly button. What could be the reason?

I have been having this sharp pain just below my belly button, it feels kinda like someone poking me with a needle or someone pulling down on my bladder or something.. I don t have this pain everyday it comes and goes. It s not excruciating pain like where as I d have to go to a hospital but it can be pretty painful.. I didn t have these pains before only recently like a few months ago, they ve gotten alittle worse as time as gone I think and the pain doesn t last long. know what could be the problem?

General Surgeon 's  Response
Intermittent pain under your umbilicus radiating to the bladder region is your complaint.
Do you find the pain increasing when the bladder is full..and the pain increasing during voiding?Pain associated with voiding can be caused by a patent urachus or the pull exerted on the median umbilical ligament.If there is also an umbilical discharge-it supports the condition.
Is there a swelling on and off at the umbilicus?cyst/hernia to be ruled out.
it is advisable for you to get a check from the general surgeon in order to rule out the aforesaid conditions ...
all the best
