What causes abdominal pain from the navel to the pubic region?

My son age 10 years complained for abdominal pain starting from naval area proceeding to pubic region and settling to right side. I rushed to emergency due to fear of appendics and he went through various examinations which include CBC, Urine DR, X -Ray abdomen, & ultra sound lower abdomen. All test were found OK except TLC level was a little higher then normal. CBC was again performed after 15 days which showed further increase in TLC. Doctor checked him clinically and declared no appendics and diagnosed that pain is due to constipation. Now even after 20 days that pain is there it appears n disappears on unspecified intervals. There might be no pain for 2 or 3 days but again he will feel pain on right side without any reason. He is still having constipation and passes hard stool only once in morning. Please help be what is reason of the pain and what should in do to get him relief.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It could be a urinary tract issue. Another probably cause is a Meckels diverticulum, considering the clinical course and raised WBC.

Last night I had a sever pain in my right abdomen right around my navel. I couldn t sit or stand there was no comfortable position to be in. The pain would be constant and unbearable for about 30 minutes and then it would get less intense. I could still tell there was pain there but I could walk and talk. At times I felt feverish, but never took my temperature. I experienced chills and sweating. I never vomited but sat over the toilet feeling like I was going to. The pain lasted for about 7 hours like this. When the pain wasn t unbearable I would fall asleep only to be woke back up 30 minutes to and hour later in tremendous pain. This also happened about a week ago, the pain was just as bad but it only lasted for an hour or two. Any idea what could be causing this?

I ve had abdominal pain for about 3 days now. The first day it felt like it was worst in the space between my ribs and navel then the second day it seemed to move into my lower left quadrant (from my perspective) Today is the 3rd day and it seems to be worst in the center under the navel. I ve also noticed today a mass/knot like thing on my pelvis, about two inches to the right (again my perspective) of my navel and 4-5 inches down. The mass seems globular in shape and is just under an inch in diameter. It s not sensitive to touch and it s difficult to locate it when I m sitting or laying down but when I stand it s very easy to find. I would describe the pain in my abdomen as achey or crampy and it was worst the first day. It seems to be worse at night and I feel like the pain is gone etirely when I first wake up but then within an hour it slowly starts coming back. Certain movements that put more strain on my abdomen seem to make it hurt more as well as touch. What could this be?
