I have sharp pain around the immediate belly button area, the pain has become more frequent over the past several months. The pain occurs when I bend over, sneeze, cough. It seems I have relief when I push in on the pain area, I would describe a poping sensation with pain when I push in.
This pain will come back, but each time I can manage the poping sensation I have relief.
A variety of causes can lead to this symptom, including, a hernia, GI conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, or muscle wall pain.
The association with sneezing, coughing and bending over suggests an umbilical hernia.
This possibility can be discussed with your personal physician. If the diagnosis continues to be in question, imaging the abdomen, perhaps with a CT scan, should be considered.
