Hello again,

I was waiting for your reply.
I am sorry for your health condition.
There can be a few possibilities for the pain.
Pain in left upper abdomen can be due to gastritis, esophagitis, peptic ulcer.
Pancreatitis, heart disease like angina, attack can cause pain here.
But as it related to food, heart issues are unlikely.
Peptic ulcer, pancreatitis pain can radiate to back...
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
A few tests would be required like ultrasound, EKG, H pylori tests.
Treatment would follow according to cause.
Meanwhile, you can try nexium, antacid.

Please take bland, non spicy diet.

Avoid smoking, alcohol if you do any.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
