Ever since i can remember my belly button has hurt when i push it. I always thought this was normal... apparently not. So the logical thing was to not push it! But in the last 6 months or so its gotten alot worse. It now hurts randomly by itsself. its like a sharp pain, like someone is pulling it from the inside, i have to literally lie in the foetal position and not move as it hurts so much. it lasts for about 2-3hrs if i dont take any pain medication. It also hurts when i sneeze or if i push above it.
I had a ultrascan ($190 later!) which showed no abnormalities (they were suspecting a hernia) So my doctor has put me on reflux medication (nexium) as a trial. Never in my life have i had reflux, so i know its not that. Does anyone have any advice? Im trying to get a second option. But at the moment im feeling doctors are usless so im trying to atleast get a idea of what it could be! Is there any tests i should ask for, to get a accurate diagnosis? thanks!
