Thank you for the query.

Such symptoms can be caused by acid reflux disease, peptic ulcer, gallstones or pancreas disease.
However such pain can be also a result of heart problem. That is why, heart condition should be checked at first. You should have heart ECG, stress test and heart ultrasound.
If heart problem is ruled out, acid reflux is the most probable reason. You should have abdominal ultrasound, blood work and upper GI endoscopy performed. Helicobacter Pylori test should be also done and if positive antibiotics should be prescribed.
You should avoid fatty foods, soft drinks, coffee, chocolate, fruit juices. Drink more mineral water.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
