In brief: Many things

Causes range from ulcers to muscle spasms to gallbladder to pancreas and more! if pain is that severe, he should be examined and tested to narrow down the list.

In brief: Hard to say

A non-typical presentation of appendicitis could refer pain to the area of the belly button.
Since you only have hours to work with if it is, you should load him up & take him in now. They can sort it out at the hospital.
