Brief Answer:
Gastritis is a possibility.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. Your problem can be due to gastritis. Applying hot water bags on abdomen will be helpful in such case. Another possibility while considering your gender and age is gall baldder stones.
Do you have pain after eating fatty foods like eggs or cakes or mayonnaise or cheese?
Initial management can be done with proton pump inhibitors like rabeprazole.
But if you have pain or discomfort associated with food intake better to go for ultrasound examination to rule out problems like gall bladder stones.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
