it could be due to lactose intolerance
it could also be due to excessive stomach acid in your stomach
excessive stomach acid can cause painful upper left abdominal pain from inflammation of your stomach
you should try stomach acid reducers like zantac or maalox or mylanta or prilosec or nexium to help decrease stomach acid.
fatty meals can cause worse stomach acid production.
fatty meals can also cause inflammation of your gall bladder which is on the right side below your ribs.
I would to avoid fatty meals and also try stomach acid reducers and see if they help
and talk to your doctor about your symptoms as well
