It sounds like you most likely have gastritis which is an inflammation of the stomach or possibly an ulcer. I would recommend you take a bland diet can also take Prilosec OTC before breakfast and at bedtime. You should see your doctor for confirmation and ask him to also order an ultrasound to exclude gallbladder disease and a test for H. pylori, a bacteria that can cause gastritis.
