You should get an ultrasound of the abdomen to rule out any pathology.It could be severe gastritis or peptic ulcer.Try cold milk or syrup sucralfate.Bland diet and plenty of water.No smoking,alcohol,caffeine.If there is any breathing difficulty or the pain radiates to to the left side,see a doctor immediately.
