I know this is incredibly frustrating for you. Im sorry you have a loser for a doctor. When you say your bellybutton is tender to touch, is it just the skin that is tender, or does it feel painful internally, underneath the bellybutton, or in the bellybutton area? The reason I ask this is that appendicitis can make your bellybutton area very sore. It's one of the red flags for appendicitis. Are you having any right sided pain? Did you mention the bellybutton pain to your doctor?
With that fever, and abdominal pain, elevated whites, I'd go to the ER. If it's appendicits, you have to get it treated asap. I'm just being cautious, not trying to freak you out. I don't think your doctor is taking enough of a concern here. To diagnose colitis with the snap of a figure is ludicrous. You need special testing for that. Like a biopsy!! Don't wait. Okay. Just go to the ER.
Let us know how you're doing,
