Other hypotheses can be proposed : 1) in patients with stimulant pain, a low threshold of pain may affect the presence of "umbilical region tenderness on pressure", 2) if the phenomenon of "umbilical region tenderness on pressure" is caused by intra-lumenal stagnation, stimulant laxatives may cause such pain through increased intestinal motility.
