Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days.

I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
