Cramps in upper stomach area right below ribs

User Profile
For about 2 weeks now i have been having cramps in my upper stomach area right below my left and right ribs. in addition I have also been feeling my stomach rumbling which i can feel. I am also feeling some nausea. My PCP palpated my stomach and gave my the regular checkup. He didn't noticed anything abnormal. Also i haven't had any vomiting or severe diarrhea. The symptoms seem worse when i sit down and not as bad when i lay down or stand.
As far as treatments I have tried Pepto , Pepcid and Zantac non of which have really seemed to help that much.
