Uncomfortable pain under belly button

Sorry in advance, this is my first post.. So, I have been having a dull/moderate pain under my belly button, right about waistline and nearly in the center. It has been 7 days now, and the pain hasn't really changed. Im 22yrs old and not pregnant, im a boy haha. This pain is mainly just uncofortable, but it gets to the point where I will have to take off my belt or undue my seatbelt. I went into an urgentcare center, and I was told it was probably gas.. I also took a urine test and it wasn't an infection of any kind. He prescribed me a stomach acid reducer, and it hasn't helped the problem at all. He felt around somewhat on my stomach and concluded it wasn't anything serious, but this pain is just not letting up, and it's uncomfortable in any position. Ive read a lot of posts, but I cant seem to find something that quite fits.. the closest I've come to think of is maybe a hernia, or maybe gall stones?? Im really unsure, but i do have an appointment, it's just not for a few weeks... Thank you in advance for any advice.

Also, I dont know if this has anything to do with it, but i do have high blood pressure, and was off my medication for some time.. I'm 6'0 and weigh 185.. the high bp was also something unsure of the cause.. its roughly 145/90 off meds

It sounds like constipation.  For your constipation and also your elevated BP, take magnesium 500 mg every morning and calcium 400 mg and vitamin D 1000 IU every morning and potassium.  

Learn to eat foods that are high in these nutrients as that is actually more effective, but you may need to keep taking the magnesium regardless if this is constipation.  

You could also try taking Metamucil at night.  You can get this in capsule form where you take 5 capsules with water at night.  Only you can decide if Metamucil works for you.  It's great for some but doesn't always work for everybody.  Drink lots of water and avoid carbonated beverages.  You could try taking a probiotic before meals.
