Done anyone ever get a pain on the left side of your bellybutton.  I call it the pit of my stomach.  It is a sharp pain, and it stay for quite some time.  Has any of your doctors said what it could be.
I am not sure if my increased med are working for me.  (25mg pednisone, 40mg humira weekly, and 100 imuran) I see the GI on Jan 19.  Hope he is able to help me.  I am so tired of being tired and so thin.   I also, have a flu/cold but that I am fighting.

I have a constant pain in that area and was told he thought it was acid reflux caused my the prednisone I was on. He said it can be hard on the stomach and since I had been on it for long periods of time that could be the issue. He prescribed me protonix sp? (acid reflux med) but it hasn't seemed to help at all. He told me he might do an endoscopy if its still going on during my next visit. I have had an endoscopy and nothing has shown up in the past so really don't want to pay the large copay to have another procedure.

I am wondering if it is bad gas pains too. I know most of my pain on the left side is generally backed up gas. Hugs!
