belly button pain after running, exercise, ect..

its been happening since i was 16yrs old im 20yrs old now and it seems as if its getting worse as i grow older. my belly button (im not sure on the medical terms for this) gets a very sharp pain and it feels almost like there is a string attached to my penis hole and the string is being stretched. it is very painful, i played football in high school and i would feel this pain after every game. it is an awful and quite scary sharp pain. Ive googled around and i haven't seen any similar cases. this only happens after running or doing something athletic. should i go to the doctors? it only lasts for about thirty mins but recently its been longer to up to an hour and a half. the pain is so bad that i cant even stand up straight and i have to sit with my knees almost to my chest in a crouched position. if any one could help it would be very appreciated.

It sounds like it might be what's called "diverticulitis" and is pretty common in most people, but not all feel the pain. It's caused from not having enough fiber in your diet and the aging process. To be sure, you could ask your doctor to send you for a lower GI series test. Good luck!
