I'M NO MEDIC BUT I'VE HAD THE SYMPTOMS BEFORE AND IT WAS DUE TO AN UMBILICAL HERNIA ALSO YOU MAY WANT TO BE CHECKED FOR A GASTRIC ULCER HOWEVER I KNOW ITS HARD TO SAY DON'T BE CONCERNED CAUSE I AM A HYPOCHONDRIAC MYSELF BUT IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO CHECK YOURSELF OUT WITH A GP AND AN XRAY OF THE STOMACH MAY BE TAKEN
