Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The symptoms described are very nonspecific and do not help to give a proper cause of your problems.

Based on the history, it seems that your abdominal pain could be associated with the following conditions :-
1. Hepatitis, or
2. gall bladder inflammation (Cholecystitis )
3. Musculoskeletal pain
4. Gastritis, or GERD (Gastro Esophageal reflux disorder)
3. Colitis ( inflammation of the colon)
4. Renal stones.

Adequate antacids (Tums, Mylanta, prevacid) and Medications like Omeprazole (Acid reducing medication) can help relieve the symptoms associated with gastritis or gastric reflux.

A complete history regarding your dietary habits, other symptoms in addition to a physical examination will be helpful to know the exact cause. Hence you might consult with your doctor for a examination and proper advice.
