Sever pain in stomach if not eating. Cause?

A while ago if I hadn t eaten in a while I would get a sharp pain in my stomach area actually a little above my stomach maybe an in above my belly button. It went away for a while but the past week it started happening again. Every day it will start hurting and then I ll eat and feel better for a little while. Then the cycle repeats itself.

Hi thanks for your question.
Felling pain while hungery is a symptom of acid peptic disease.This is classical presentation of dudenal ulcer.I would suggest you to consult a physician who may be able to perform upper G I endoscopy on you to rule out duodnal ulcer as a cause for your symptoms or pick up any other disease responsible for your pain.Accordingly he/she may prescribe you appropriate treatment.You can take antacid and proton pump blocker like pantoprazole
Hope this answers your question.
