Hi and thanks for the query,
The pain described is very suggestive a classical peptic ulcer disease or commonly called gastritis pain.
The diagnosis of gastritis is both clinical and paraclinical. Clinical diagnosis involves your doctor asking you questions and carrying out a physical examination. AS fibroscopy could be asked to ascertain the extent of the disease. This is also helpful in testing of a germ, which has been found to be well related and to cause this disease called helicobacter pylori. However, other abdominal conditions could mimic a similar clinical scenario and other exams like abdominal ultrasound and chest x ray could be necessary to make a clear cut distinction depending on the case.
Consulting your primary care physician could be very helpful.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
