Brief Answer:
Can be intestinal gass

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I believe that pain and tenderness behind your belly button may be caused by excessive gass in intestines or indigestion.
It may be caused by ingesting gas or eating certain foods such cabbages , cauliflower, sprouts , prunes , pears etc.
You may use simethicone or espumisan to reduce intestinal gass and pain.
Also buscopan may be used to reduce abdominal pain.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
