Severe stomach pain near the belly button. Have severe dizziness. What could be the reason?

Hi, I woke up this morning with sharp stomach pains. The pain was about 2 to the right of my belly button. I started getting dizzy as if I was going to pass out.. I took some Advil and laid down. After a couple of hours, the pain has decreased but has spread all across my stomach and has since moved to my left side as well as my back. It s not hurting as bad as this morning, but is still noticeable.

Thanks for the query.

I understand the pain you are going through. Any pain in abdomen should not be taken lightly. Pain killers may reduce the pain for sometime. But they are also masking the actual problem. You have also mentioned that pain has spread all over the abdomen though reduced in intensity. It shows that the problem still persists. Are you having fever? Is there any problem while passing urine? A lot of questions needs to be answered before finding the exact problem.

I would suggest you to consult a gastroenterologist at the earliest. Your condition needs to be examined properly. You might have to undergo ultrasonography of abdomen to pin point the cause of pain. Meanwhile, avoid spicy and oily food. Drink plenty of water.

Hope I have been of some help to you. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you.
