Thank you for the query.

Such symptoms can appear due to pregnancy, peptic ulcers, gallstones, pancreas disease or stress and IBS. Peptic ulcers do give upper middle abdominal pain, which usually starts after a meal, nausea and chest burning also appears.
Gallstones and pancreas diseases give upper middle and right abdomen pain which radiates to the back. Lose stools can also appear.
It is advisable for you to have some diagnostics. Abdominal ultrasound, full blood work, liver tests (AST.ALT,GGTP), amylase, bilirubin, urine analysis and pregnancy test should be performed. If no findings the next step should be upper GI endoscopy.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

My husband has a uniformed rash on his back. No raised welts or pimples. He says there's no itching or burning but I'm afraid it may have something to do with his pancreatitis which he was diagnosed with 4 years ago. His doctor said he has a neucrotic pancreas.
