I am a 25 year old male I sometimes experience

Patient : I am a 25 year old male. I sometimes experience a sharp excruciating pain behind my belly button. It feels like a cord or string is attached to my penis and behind my belly button and it feels like it tugs. I have had this since i was 14. The pain episode used to last a few minutes, but within the last few years it lasts for hours at a time. During an episode i can't sit, bend, lay down, laugh, lift or pee. I thought it was an umbilical hernia but they x rayed me and couldn't find anything wrong with me. I've found others on the internet complaining of what seems to be the same problem, but nobody knows what this is.
