Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You may be suffering from acute gastritis with acid reflux. Pain around the belly button may be due to small bowel infection or belly button pain. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Use tablet Nexium 40 mg before breakfast for one week. Avoid spicy food and alcohol consumption. If symptoms are not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly. Take care.
