I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to help you with your concerns.
Do you notice any swelling at the area?
Also do you have any nausea, vomiting?
well swelling in my bellybutton,as far as nausea ,yes sometimes
then this is likely a hernia.
The hernia can get strangulated causing these symptoms.
Acute appendicitis is another possibility as well.
But hernia is more likely diagnosis.
You need to seek medical attention today since your symptoms are suggestive of possible hernia syrangulation.
Hence, my suggestion will be to go to the emergency room.
so what should ido im a wellsite geologist im working on a well north of Amarillo tx, should I go to the hospital?
this needs to be checked out.
how will they fix it?
if this is strangulating, then they need to do a surgical repair to prevent any reduce blood flow to the bowel.
well ive had the runs for a while
that can be viral infection.
however since you noticed the swelling and it is getting painful, this shoudl be addressed.
if it was not painful, then it would not have been concerning.
whats a good hospital to go to in amarillo
you can go to the any local hospital at your convenience.
well how long should I wait?
NorthWest Texas hospital
If the pain is worsening along with nausea, and vomiting, then this should be addressed soon.
