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
