Hi,
This may be in connection with liver, spleen or stomach. It depends where exactly the pain is.
you might have gastritis or some thing wrong in liver or spleen.
So after complete examination of abdomen we can have some clue.
You may go for LFT,Ultra sound.

my belly button is swollen I believe it is very tender and hurts when I even just move it makes it very hard to sleep and function in general. Not to mention I tried sticking a Q Tip in too see if maybe it just needed to be clean and it wouldn t go inside too much and hurt upon touch. What is this ? is it just simple swelling ? and what can I do to start the healing process

I am female age 45...in perimenopause-recently had a period after two and half months. Daily experience of feeling bloated and look like I m pregnant(I am not), bowel changes include urgent need to move bowels several times during the day yet urgency doesn t match quantity-stools are soft to loose, often feel indigestion, bloat, occasional heartburn. My diet is relatively healthy, exercise 1-3 X s wk. Can t seem to beat the bloated, gassy feelings I experience daily. Have had gastritis in the past but didn t last this long, but I m not ruling it out either. Concerned symptoms may be a gastritis, food allergy/sensitivity, or perhaps a diverticulosis. Suzane

I recently had a baby 6 mos ago. Since then my stomach has been acting up-which I am seeing a gastrologist. I have been diagnosed with gastritis and am taking protonix in am and zantax 300 at night. (2 years ago had same stomach issue was scoped and took protonix for couple months and stomach issues went away until after pregnancy). This week I went in for a thorough check up and physical. My doc took blood tests-everything came back awesome except my vit B12 levels, which were at 183. With the hoiday weekend upon us everyone is gone now to ask questions. My doc told me to come in for B12 shot and then to do it once a month for 3 mos. They will then recheck to see course of action. Could my gastritis be the cause for the deficiency? and should I do the shots or take supplements. What course of action should I take. I would think if it is my stomach causing the issue supplementation wouldn t work if there is absorption problem. Stomach issues also run in my family and my aunt passed away from stomach cancer young. Is there another test I should be doing?
