Belly button region pain is a side effect of allupurinol
Also pain in kidney region can be caused by allupurinol if you do not drink enough water with it
I suggest you see your Urologist
Good Luck

Hi and thank you for posting to question doctors. com
In my opinion belly button pain is caused by upper GI inflammation and esophagitis..
Drink plenty of water and stick to a healthy stomach diet .
Have you been diagnosed with hiatal hernia ever?

Yes I have been diagnosed with hiatal hernia,it also seems odd but when I look down it appears that the left side of my stomach is slightly more disdented.

hi
this indicates intestinal inflammation or infection.
Take pre and probiotic tablets along with anti spasmodics.
get a usg abdomen done if symptoms do not get relieved.
thanks
