I am suffering from belly pain, bledding naval and diarrhea.

Hi, i m a 22 year old female, very overweight at 18 stone and 5ft 2in in height, I suffer from depression, diabetes and reflux but have been consistent with taking my meds and have never had a problem with them! A few days ago the area around my belly button i noticed was becoming very painful, i was crying with it last night i was in so much pain, today however i noticed there was dry blood all around the outside of my belly button so i cleaned it off and noticed it was still bleeding, its only bleeding a little but its been like this now for quite a few hours, i have also been suffering from chronic diarrhea which started at the same time as my tummy pains, I have felt very sick but not actually been sick, what can I do to help myself ? Thankyou

Hi,
You have two problems together, both are of different causes.
As you have pain and bleeding near your belly button, there may be infection in or surrounding your umbilicus and you are diabetic you have to consult surgeon and seek his advise as early as possible.
For chronic diarrhoea you go for anti dysentery course.

welcome to healthcare magic,
minor bleeding from umbilicus may be due to an infected boil,abdominal wall abcess,infected urachal cysts or endometriosis if this phenomenon is concurrent with menstrual period.
any amount of bleeding from umbilicus should be evaluated.but don't be impatient,it is not a debilitating condition.get a doctor near by and have some investigations like examination of discharge from umbilicus,CT scan of abdomen if your detailed physical examination supports it.

Doctor, I have been suffering from Stomach problems since last 1 year. Earlier I was suffering from irregular bowel movements with episodes of diarrhea and cramps. After physical examination and case history, the doctor declared it as IBS-D, I was treated for the same and was asked to add yogurt (Dahi) and avoid milk to my diet. The symptoms were under control but since last few days I am having severe Gas Problem and slight uneasy pain in my stomach mostly near belly button. I also feel sudden cramp and burning sensation at times and there seems urgency to pass stool. I also have a metallic taste in morning after waking up and do not feel like eating anything due to this. In the evenings also the gas problem becomes severe 3 months ago I had a strong stomach pain which was diagnosed to be as a result of gas produced by eating some outside food but the intensity was high hence I got the USG abdomen done to avoid any stone issues. The USG was normal. Kindly suggest I am really confused and not feeling healthy

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and decided to have a bilateral mastectomy though the cancer was in my right breast. I was born with a deformed left hand but never really diagnosed for anyjthing. After my mastectomy the plastic surgeon told me that I have Polands Syndrome because I didn't have my left pectoral muscle although I have a breast a bit smaller than my right and that also explained my webbed left handfingers. I also have symptoms of horners syndrome on the left side of my face, drooping eye lid aand absence of sweat. Do you think the syndromes are all connected?
