Brief Answer:
Pancrstitis and chikecystitis should be ruled out

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM,I have thoroughly reviewed health query you raised, and well realize all of those concerns
This may indicate pancreatitis or cholecystitis so you should get ultrasound and basic laboratory tests done. gallbladder stones are most common cause of such pain. however,acid reflux may radiate to back as well and some more serious diagnoses such as sorting aneurysm. this requires more extensive gastroenterologic work up. try to avoid coffee,alcohol and fried food.eat boiled food, more vegetables, and probiotics. but at least ultrasound and lab tests should be done.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Wish you good health. Regards
