Upper middle abdominal pain may be due gastritis or pancreatitis or left love of liver cysts or infection etc.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Use tablet pantoprazole.

Avoid spicy food and alcohol avoid smoking and caffeine drinks.

Get it done ultrasound abdomen and serum electrolytes and upper GI endoscopy.

Please consult your gastroentrologist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
