well it could be gastritis or stomach ulcers or food intolerance. gastritis could be due to alcohol, drugs like aleeve or ibuprofen. it will be important to see you doctor n get confirmation . he may want to order tests such as liver function tests, complete blood and stool blood test and H pylori test. if it worsens he may refer to GI doctor for a scope. meanwhile taking prilosec OTC will help with this problem .. thetreatment for stomach ulcers is any is prescription strength PPPI like nexium or prevacid for 14 days minimum.
