This is most likely from acid peptic disorder, which can include gastritis, acid reflux, duodenal or gastric ulcer, etc.
This is something for which you must show your doctor. You need to be examined for this. Liver, spleen or pancreatic disorders can also cause this, along with lesions in the intestines.
An ultrasound of the abdomen will help in diagnosis - discuss this with your doctor.For now, take a Prilosec 20 mg cap (OTC) and an antacid like Mylanta which will help in case of acid peptic disorder.
