Burning, stabbing pain in stomach, feel nauseated after eating. Prescribed tecta, not helpful. Heartburn?

Hi I was wondering why my stomach hurts so bad daily? . Its a burning ,gawning, stabbing crampy pain, when I do eat I get even more nauseated than before. My family doc thinks its heartburn or acid, I was prescribed tecta for it but it doesnt help all the time. What else could it be? Pain feels like pulling up my ribcage in solarplexus area more on my upper right side and around my back. Help me please!

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
your pain description does not fit into one particular diagnosis
yes, burning and gnawing pain worsening with food can happen in acidity/ulcer problem it is unlikely to cause sharp or stabbing pain which usually suggests pain origin from abdominal wall.
Its important to see which is exact sight of pain and how long it is there.
You should get an endoscopy and ultra sonography to see the origin of problem and the decide on treatment some time it could be just dyspepsia or functional pain syndrome aggravated by anxiety
hope this answers your query
please do reply in case of any further questions
wish you a speedy recovery
