Hi Shelton,

Thanks for the query.

A chronic gastric ulcer or a gastritis is a possibility as your symptoms increase on eating food. You should probably get an upper Gastrointestinal endoscopy done.

A chronic H.Pylori may also be a cause.

A medical gastroenterologist would be able to help you with this.

Consider taking proton pump inhibitors like Pantoprazole. Eat bland diet, drink plenty of water.

Get well soon.
