Brief Answer:
A number of causes

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma’am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but since you have excluded cardiac and splenic causes then I would recommend that you get an ultrasound to exclude kidney problems , gall bladder inflammation or stones and ovarian cysts. I would also recommend that you get a stool analysis for h. pylori infection to exclude gastritis.. If these causes were excluded then you should get a blood test for pancreatic enzymes to exclude pancreatitis.. I hope you find this helpful..
