Hi,
I am a 22 year old male. I have been having constant dull ache like cramp in the periumbilical region. Maybe about 2 inches left but in line with my navel. The pain only seems to come on when I am lying down. When I get up and walk around, the pain is completely gone but returns when I lie down flat on my back again. I don't have any associated bloating or gas such as belching or flatulence before, during or after the pain. Can this still be some sort of trapped gas? The pain has only happens once every few months and only lasts for a few hours but what has me worried is that it is localized always in the same spot and the pain is unique (not typical colicky gas pains but a more steady ache). I have already had a colonoscopy done because of maroon coloured bleeding with biopsies that show no evidence IBD. All that was found was prominent nodular lymphoid hyperplasia of the terminal ileum.

Abdominal Pain Answer A11259
Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

I’ll suggest doing a contrast enhanced CT scan of the abdomen to look for the cause of the pain.

It could be due to a stone in the urinary tract (although the pain in the same is more of colicky in nature).

The CT scan will help in better delineation of the lymph nodes. Please do consult a gastroenterologist for the same. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
