Pain in the upper abdomen can be due to two to three things. First it can be due to peptic ulcer disease (commonly called as acidity). Pain is usually in the upper middle abdomen and increases on taking meals. It can be associated with burning sensation in the lower chest and upper abdomen. It usually relieves on taking milk, saunf etc. or taking anti acid drugs. Secondly it can be due to stones in the gall bladder which is usually on right upper abdomen and under the rib cage. It can be associated with fever and it also aggravates on taking orally. It can be diagnosed on usg. The third common cause of pain in upper abdomen can be due to inflammation in pancreas (the organ which control sugars and helps in digestion of food) which is also diagnosed on USG and some times need CT scan. So consult your physician and get usg abdomen done. This will help localize the cause of your pain.
