Thanks for posting,

Pain at that level of the stomach could be due to peptic ulcer diseases or GERD or acute gastritis or acid reflux or biliary disorder (stones, infection etc). To cure or treat the symptoms, the cause has to be first of all be determined. Treating symptoms will require antispasmodic medications such as hysocin butyl or spasfon and analgesic pain killers such as acetaminophen or other stronger (non-NSAID) medications such as tramadol.
But what you actually need to do now is consult a gastroenterologist who can properly evaluate you and determine the actual cause of your pain. You will require blood tests, endoscopy and physical examination for the cause to be determine.

Hope this helps and wish you the best.
