Constant weight loss, bubble like feeling on left side down to lower ribs. Are these age related ?

I am a 42 year old white male. Good health fairly active lifestyle but could lose 20-30 lbs. What started as sporadic in nature is pretty much consistent. Right after I eat I feel a bubble like feeling on my left side that goes down to my lower ribs. If I eat bread or heavy foods its more evident. Have no other problems or symptoms. Curious if this is a normal part of aging or might have pulled something years ago and never knew it. Did seem appear after a long plane ride across the country....Ideas ? Seems like a lot of queries like this but no concrete answers.

i can tell you that it is not age related as you are not malnourished or bedridden to loose weight.And please make sure when you are eating any spicy foods whats your response .Age may be the risk factor for this problem but age is not the only reason for the change.Try to use antacids and feel you have any difference with that.You better go and consult a gastroenterologist for more detailed answer and they willdo some investigations to ruleout other causes.Thank you
