General & Family Physician Dr. Imaad Mohammed Ismail's  Response
Hi, it could be a case of Gastritis so please use anti-ulcer drug like Omeprazole or Rantac.
If the pain does not subside it could be due to renal(Kidney) stone right side or due to appendicitis or sometimes due to gynecology problem. So please consult a surgeon if the pain does not subside or if you have sever pain. And remember to drink plenty of water. Regards, Dr.Ismail.

Hi there. I have a question. I have a pain in my belly button and slightly to the right of my belly button. It s much worse if I touch it. Feels a little swollen. Almost feels like my intestines are swollen or something. Sometimes I feel this same pain in my lower, right quadron and it is usually due to drinking milk. I haven t had milk lately and this pain is not in the usual place. Any ideas of what it could be? Should I see my doctor? Worried it might be a hernia or something.

belly button pain I had some slight pain if I put my finger in my belly button and pressed a month ago and then it went away the next day. just yesterday i bent over and felt it again but when i pushed on it lightly it was sharp and so painful. I didnt get much sleep last night because im having slight discomfort when lying down. all day today I can feel its there and the pain has lessened but when I put my finger in there and slughtly press I feel the discomfort mostly in the back top of it. I dont feel a hernia bulging, im 105 lbs, 5 0 , my gland is in front of my right ear noticeable by rouch and so is the on on the rt of my lower mandible. two days before I had the recent belly button pain I was up a coupld times with cramping pains to the point where I thought I was getting my period but didnt. Im taking a vitamin A mostly every day because Ive been having so much acne for reasons I cant figure out. ive never had acne. i dont eat fast food, I cook all my meals, I eat glueten free meals, I dont eat znything with added sugar and I have a mild case of lactose intolerance, cant have real milk and certain cheeses, no creamy stuff. Ive never had suergery or babies. I cant think of anything else. Im asking for help this way because I cant afford insurance.

I ate a peace of chicken breast and after swallowing it, I feel that there is a small peace stuck in in my throat. I tried driinking hot coffee, swallowed a big peace of banana and the feeling of clutching in my slightly right of my middle chest is still there. Its been two days now and it feels likethe peace of chicken is still there. The feeling is diff. from heartburn. Im beginning to think I ate it so fast that it went the wrong way instead of my esophagus or it may be stuck in my airway. However i dont feel any obstruction in my breathing. I can breath fine. Whats going on my throat,..please tell me what to do.
