Query by chelseaaa92: what could be the cause why i have a pain on the left side of my belly button?

its been hurting for a prolonged time maybe like six months? it hurts on and off.
i looked up on the internet what it could be and the only issue i have located is a hernia.

Very best solution:

It can be some thing like stomach gasoline. It truly is easy but hurts like hell.

    Some thoughts on your symptoms:

    1. An adhesion, or a band of scar tissue that can occur after surgery, may be responsible for this type of pain.
    2. Pain around the navel can indicate appendicitis http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/appendicitis/DS00274/DSECTION=symptoms. Not all appendicitis is acute (meaning it needs immediate emergency surgery).
    3. Pain around the navel can indicate ovarian cysts. I’m assuming you’re female, but if you’re not obviously this doesn’t apply! There are many types of ovarian cysts, and most of them resolve (go away) on their own.
    4. Constipation can cause pain around the navel.
    5. Urinary tract infections can cause pain around the navel.

    Why can problems in different areas cause pain in an unrelated area? This is called “referred pain”, which happens because nerves from your spine can lead to two different areas. If one area is injured or hurt, the pain “signals” go to your spine and back down the nerves to the unhurt area, making it hurt.

    You may want to research “navel pain” related to the above suggestions. The fact that you’ve had hernia surgery may indicate that this is some type of minor complication of the surgery.
