The past 4-5 months I've had on and off stomache pains sometimes only a little pain sometimes so bad it's hard to breathe. I've been to the doctors and was told I had appendicitis by 3 diffrent doctors then one night I went to emergency because it was getting hard to breathe, they did more tests and said its not appendicitis (they didn't know what it was. Then my parents thought lactose but when I don't have diary the pains sill there. The pain makes me really tried and the pain moves around but is ussally just bellow my belly button. Anyone know what it could be?

    I'm just guessing because I have it ...Gastritis. do you feel hot cold shivery ..do you have heart burn or burp alot ..maybe a sore throat . ..You need a Endoscopy to see inside your stomach ..if it continues . Try eating a very plain diet ..no spicy foods low fat nothing fried no tea or coffee or citrus acid fruits . Get a good gastroenterologist!!.

    Good luck

    Best to get it checked properly by having a colonoscopy and a gastroscopy. I also had a ct scan where they put in a line and I drank something as well. Between all the tests, I have been diagnosed with Crohns, diverticulitis and gallstones. There is treatment so don't panic. The ct scan with the line in has a good look at everything too. 

    A diagnosis is needed so find a good GP who will refer you for the tests and to the relevant specialist. 

    You will be fine. I doubt it is Crohns because I ended up in hospital for that diagnosis. I could eat or drink until it was treated.

    Whatever it is the tests will find it. All the best.

    hi elizabeth..it happened to me..I just do know know if the cause is the same..eating meat..the one I ate wa spoorly cookes (i thought).. as the pain aggravates,the more it is difficult to breathe... as I grasp in for air... I feel there is a sharp object plunging through my chest and heart... the pain in the belly button though doesn't stay there for long..Though I have belly button pains it would wander around in different areas of my body.i used liniment first.. it subsided but was not enough..I ate papaya..though i felt full..later i am starting to let out gas and then went to the toilet..that was i htink 2 yrs ago.
