Just one more question Mathew--does this pain seem to be in your abdominal wall or deeper than that?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It does not seem deep to me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Mathew. The one thing that would act like this would be an umbilical hernia--one that's near your belly button. If these are small there may not be any swelling or lump there. I'd suggest you have a doctor look at you and I'd get a ct scan of your abdomen and abdominal wall to check for this. If it is a small hernia, it should be surgically repaired before it gives you any major trouble. Alternatively it might just be a mild case of irritable bowel syndrome that will resolve soon but still you should have a doctor look at it.
