I have pain in stomach when eating

The first time I noticed this pain was about 2 months ago. Whatever I ate or drank (excluding water) would cause horrible cramp like/acidic pain just under my right rib. This continued for a couple of weeks. The pain has now moved to my lower abdomen on the left and right side just above my hip bones. I also get pain in my oesophagus right under my trachea , almost as if some food is stuck there. I had to go to my doctor 2 weeks ago as my right knee had randomly swollen. I was also experiencing pain in the last three toes on both my feet (kind of like they were bruised) and stiff painful ankles. Whilst there I mentioned the stomach pains and he gave me Omeprazole 20mg capsules 1d. I have been taking these since then but they aren t making much of a difference to the pain. The doctor did blood tests and the only thing that showed up was in my bone profile(?) which showed arthritis - I am only 27 and have never suffered with painful joints before so I find it very odd that I would have arthritis. My knee is still swollen and my left knee is now starting to show signs of inflammation. I am generally feeling under the weather and have a random rash all around my right wrist (which is also starting to feel stiff and painful) - just looks red and bumpy and is a bit itchy. I suffer slight acne because I have PCOS but I have recently been coming out in quite a few large painful boil like spots. My doctor is on holiday until Thursday - they have given me a telephone slot with him. I am going to ask him to do further investigations as I am not happy with the original diagnosis, but in the meantime does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be happening to me. Thank you for taking the time to read my essay!!
