Pain in Belly Button When Urinating
ColoAllen posted:
I have tried to research this topic, and it seems that a large amount of people have the same problem, but no real answers. The problem is everyone once in a while when I urinate I get a sharp unbearable pain in my belly button. Does anyone have some kind of idea what is going on here?

Yes. It probably has nothing to do with your navel. What's likely going on is that you have an internal pain that is registering on nearby nerve clusters. So whether from a small defect in your urethra, or a small kidney or bladder stone (sometimes smaller than a grain of sand), or perhaps another internal organ nearby in your lower gut that has an issue, you're getting transmission of that pain to other nearby nerves that can actually register it.

The problem with internal pain is that it only has two levels of intensity, zero and excruciating. When you get excruciating, your brain has difficulty determining the actual location of the source, and registers it somewhere nearby that has external pain nerves too.

See a urologist or a gastroenterologist and get checked out.
