Is it significant if I have abdominal pain?

I m a relatively healthy 23 year old female with anxiety issues. On Ativan .5mg up to twice a day as needed. I ve been having a mild dull pain in my upper right abdomen for a few days now. I ve also had a lot of burping in my throat and burning sensation in my chest. This is the third time this has happened in the last six months. I ve had an ultrasound done with no irregularities, and two or three clinic doctors have seen me about this, saying it was nothing significant. It s slightly concerning because I don t know what it is, and I ve been avoiding eating much because I m afraid to exacerbate it.

Thanks for your query.
From your history it seem your pain in upper right abdomen and burning increases after eating so you are probably trying to avoid food.This is a sign of gastritis that is inflammation of stomach lining due to acidity.Drinking cold milk will help reduce the burning.
You can take over the counter medicine like Digene gel for relief and if do not feel better please consult a doctor and get medicine prescribed.He may prescribe you a proton pump inhibitor group medicine and you shall be fine.
Take care.
