Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
No UTI will not cause that.
Pain at the diaphragm area can be due to the stomach related problem.
Stomach ulcer can cause this.
Also gallbladder stone can cause similar pain.
Pancreatitis is another condition.
You will need a CT scan of the abdomen with contrast.
Also an endoscopy should be planned.
Please go back and ask for these tests.
Or you can consult with a gastroenterologist.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Does it do the same thing with solid food? or just liquids?

Hi there, This is a GI issue --likely ulcer most common. Please see a gastro doc soon. Omeprazole is over the counter --can be tried twice daily meanwhile.
