Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you are having gastritis due to increased acid secretion in your stomach. Other possibility can be hepatiitis.

You should avoid remaining empty stomach for long and also avoid spicy and oily foods.
You should drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water in a day.

Also get your blood investigated for Liver Function Test(LFT).
If the pain persists, get an Ultrasound of upper abdomen done to rule out any gall bladder involvement.

You should get yourself examined clinically.
Treatment can be planned according to the reports of the above mentioned investigations.

I hope this is helpful to you.
