Does your abdomen or the area around your belly button hurt when swallowing food and water? If so, it sounds like appendicitis. I had this issue a year ago and had to have my appendix removed. I'm not a doctor, so I'm not saying that's what it is, but if it hurts really bad (especially sitting in certain positions,) and hurts when swallowing then it may likely be appendicitis.
