Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could suggest gastric ulcer. Consider visiting your doctor/gastroenterologist for further evaluation (endoscopy if required to visualize the ulcer), and get started on appropriate antacids and medications to gastric acid production to help relieve your symptoms along with ulcer healing drugs to help with faster healing of ulcer (if detected). Have small frequent meals. Avoid rich or spicy foods, and avoid citrus fruits and fruit juices. Drink plenty of water. Avoid stress. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gastroenterologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
