Brief Answer:
Probably gastritis induced

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns.

Your symptoms could be due to gastritis, so I would recommend that you take a proton pump inhibitor as Omeprazole 20mg once daily and an antacid as ranitidine before every meal.

I would also recommend that you take a test for H.pylori infection as it might be the cause of gastritis. Please avoid spicy and fatty foods in the meanwhile..

Another cause could be due to pancreatitis which can be diagnosed by ultrasound and can be treated accordingly...

I hope you find this helpful.. Let me know if I can assist you further.
