What causes stomach pain?

Hi,
I have a severe stomach pain that started yesterday. I have had this type of pain for the last several years. What I have observed is that it starts after generally eating meat, most typically chicken, and lasts for two days. The first day it starts with a mild stomachache, and then is followed by a severe abdominal pain. At its peak, I feel dizzy and have fever. The next day, the fever and dizziness disappear and my stomach pain continues for another 1 day. The pain completely disappears in the third day.
I had similar pain 4 years ago; I went to a doctor and she immediately directed me to a hospital with the diagnosis that I should have my appendix removed. After getting my appendix removed, I was relieved, although not completely, of the stomach pain for 2-3 years.
I am suspecting that my stomach is sensitive to certain foods and would like to know if it is possible to know which types of foods I am sensitive to so that I can avoid eating them in the future?

General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Read and understood your history.
This is a typical history, where the person suffers from pain in abdomen for 2 days after eating chicken.
Starts as stomach ache and then increases in intensity followed by dizziness and fever. -No pain by day 3. - wonderfully appendicitis relieved your pain for 2 to 3 years. This is fare and odd to notice.
Usually the symptoms would have been not relieved at all or wound not have recurred.

I would advise you the following:
The simplest tests are:
It is you and your family members who have to list down everything you eat or drink and see what are the foods and / or beverages that are causing the problems you have.
-In addition I would advise also to have one colonoscopy so that a certain problem related to colitis can be confirmed or ruled out.

The treatment obviously is to avoid , in fact say no to all the foods / beverages / spices / additives/ adulterants which you must have noticed to cause you a problem like the one you explained so well.
I find this answer helpful
