I am experiencing pain in and around my belly button


Q: I am experiencing pain in and around my belly button. The pain seems to get worse when I am stretching or laying down on my side. Sometimes I get sharp pains when laying down that last from a few seconds to about a minute. I feel nauseous and my stomach rumbles and makes digesting noises quite often. When I breathe out heavily the pain gets worse and it's only just bearable. The pain surrounding my bellybutton is quite sharp but apart from that nothing else hurts. Should I be concerned?

Symptoms:  Stomach pain, belly button pain, nausea
