Doc Reveals Why Feeling Inside Your Belly Button Feels Weird

Have you ever poked around in your belly button and felt a bizarre ‘zing’ inside your belly?

Yeah, you’re not alone… and our fascination with our belly buttons, their purpose and what they attach to hasn’t wavered over the years.

Go on, stick your finger in now… feels weird doesn’t it?

According to a report on LADBIBLE, Doctor Christopher Hollingsworth of NYC Surgical Associates explains just why that unsettling feeling of needing to pee but knowing that you don't need to pee exists.

"At the navel, you have the ability to stimulate not only the skin overlying the navel, but also the fibres of the inner lining of your abdomen.

"So, as you stick your finger into your belly button, it sends a signal from the deeper fibres that line your inner abdominal cavity to your spinal cord."

"Because your spinal cord at that level is also relaying signals from your bladder and urethra, it feels almost the same.

You interpret this as discomfort in your bladder."

Who KNEW?!
