my 14 year old son is having server pain in his belly button what could this be?

Could be many things: Is pain persistent or intermittent? Any pain in other part of his belly, or his body? Any constipation or diarrhea? Any nausea or vomiting? Any relation to certain type of foods, or his stress level? Does the pain wake him up from sleep? Is he on any medications? Any other member of the family with same pain? Did he lose any weight? Answer to all them would help narrow the possibilities of cause.
