My son is six years old. He is very active child and has no health problems and complaints. The only problem is that he has a pot belly which is very prominent. I have consulted doctors and till date nothing has helped. He has no problem in passing stools.He does not complain of stomach related problems and his digestion also seems to be absolutely normal. Can someone help and tell what the problem could be?

My son, 12, has had a cbc, ultrasound , CT scan , X-Ray, and an allergy test and everything checks out okay. He is having a hard time breathing and soreness from his belly button to his solar plexus . This has been going on for over a month. He s been prescribed prednisone and prilosec, but nothing seems to be working. He doesn t have a problem eating and says that a cool drink eases the pain. He s a very active kid, please help.

My son, 32, has a herniated belly button, he is under doctor s watch for this, but on his back a little higher then his waistline right in the middle there is a patch of bruising. about one inch thick and runs horizontal for about three inches either side of his spine. It also hurts, could this be related to the hernia, he keeps forgetting to ask. Had the bruising problem for several years. Comes and goes but is very painful, motions to put on his socks, tie his shoes is very painful.
