This is very likely to be an Acid Peptic disorder.

What this means is that you are having excessive prodiction of acids in your stomach.

You should use these following OTC medications:

Cap. Prilosec 20 mg - one capsule once daily before breakfast for 15 days.
Mucaine gel - 2 tsf. three times daily for 15 days.

If the pain does not go away with this, then you should approach your doctor for a check up.
