Sudden innie belly button mucus.....
I'm 18, male. I eat okay, never a lot of unhealthy junk. I'm 5' 6". I eat fruits, more some of my other friends do. I exercise every 2 days or so, so I'm not obese, just a little overweight by 7 pounds in my class.
One morning when I woke up, took a shower, there was this sudden sharp pain that erupted in my belly button innerds. It felt like a very sharp needle that was stabbing the area. It wasn't a diarrhea problem, because I didn't need to go. So I just ignored it for a while hoping it would go away. The next day, the pain didn't go away, and out of curiosity I looked inside my belly button, and there was so much build-up of hardened foul-smelling mucus! I was scared, so naturally I dug it out, took a shower and washed the remains out. After a few hours, it would build back up again in liquified form. So I did the same thing. I would always have to do this for every few hours that day. The next 2 days, the pain dumbed down to the point where I don't have to hold my stomach to ease it. The build-up of mucus was less constant also, and now I only have to worry about it at least twice a day.
So during the few days of this scary and smelly predicament, I stocked up and ate more fruits than I normally would. Apples, valencia oranges, cantaloupes, watermelons, etc.....especially citrus fruits, because I figured they would detoxify whatever it was in my body. I even avoided meats as much as possible. I thought that whatever I had might be carcinogenic! That's how I scared I was.
Does anyone know what I have? Is it something that will go away in time, or is it diet related? I'm really scared, and I really hope it passes away soon.
