I have a sharp pain in my belly button and it feels like something is pulling it from the inside. What is the cause of this pain?

In brief: Umbilical hernia

Most likely cause of your symptoms is an umbilical hernia with fat caught in it.
Do you notice a bulge in the umbilicus? A simple physical exam should determine if you have a hernia.

In brief: Have an examination

Hard to tell without an examination.
Is there a small bulge at the umbilicus? A small hernia is possible. See a doctor for an evaluation.
