Over the past couple of days I've noticed a slight pulling like sensation just below my naval. The first time I noticed it, it was around my bladder, but now its around 2 inches below my naval and a little more twords my right hand side, but not by much. I don't have any previous medical conditions. What I mean by a pulling sensation, is that it feels almost like something is pulling the inside of my skin inward. It doesn't hurt at all, just odd feeling. I also only notice it while sitting or laying down, but not while standing. Also, I feel it occurring mainly when I exhale, just before I inhale again.
Any sugestions to getting rid of this or if it could be something serious brewing?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Pulling sensation below naveus can be due to hernia,UTI or a testicle injury.Even if it is at times it requires an evaluation as it can lead to hernia later.
Consider visiting a Physician for physical examination.Meanwhile avoid any heavy weight lifting.

Take Care!
