Brief Answer:
Probably gastritis. Try Omeprazole first!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about your pain. I have reviewed the information fully.

This is suggestive of possible gastritis given the nature of the pain and its location and accompanying symptoms. I will recommend Omeprazole 20mg, available over the counter. You can take a maximum of two per day. I expect that you get relief within a few hours after taking this drug. If this fails to happen, please update me with any new symptoms and I will guide you.

I hope these guides and helps.
I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if as the need arises.
Regards
