Brief Answer:
Gastritis or gastric ulcer may be the cause.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for your query.

The symptoms point towards gastritis or gastric ulcer as the cause for the problem.
Usually patients respond well to Proton pump inhibitors.

If this is not helping you then you may need further evaluation.

H pylori infection also presents like this. It is recommended to take H pylori kit.

First a baseline ultrasound of the abdomen with help us to rule out any organomegaly or other pathology.

Endoscopy of the Upper Gastrointestinal tract will help to arrive at a diagnosis.

Treatment depends upon the cause.

Hope the answer helps you.
