Thank you for all the information,
I am sorry for your symptoms.
Pain after taking food in this area can come from a few causes.
Gastritis or stomach ulcer or reflux can be there.

Burping can come from those.
Sometimes pancreatic or biliary problem or abdominal angina can cause it.
When it is continuing, you can have a review by doctor.
Endoscopies, ultrasound or scans, H. pylori test, angiography can be needed to come to exact diagnosis.
Meanwhile, you can continue taking nexium/ ranitidine.
Please take bland meal.
Avoid fatty, spicy food, alcohol.
This will help in reflux/ gastritis.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Wish your early recovery.
