Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would suggest you following investigations :-
1. Liver Function Test(LFT).
2. Serum Amylase and Lipase.
3. Ultrasound upper abdomen.

Your symptoms can be due to excessive acid and gas production.
You can take antacid like Omeprazole 20 mg once a day before breakfast.

Following precautions can be helpful :-
1. Avoid spicy/oily foods.
2. Do not miss a meal.
3. Avoid cigarette/alcohol, if any.
4. Avoid emotional/mental stress.
5. Do not self medicate, especially with pain killers and steroids.

Reports of the above mentioned investigations will help in planning your medical management.

I hope this is helpful to you.
