Thank you for your question.

The most common cause of the kind of symptoms that you are having is acid peptic disease.

Other causes of such pain include kidney disease, gallbladder disease, pancreatitis among other problems.

Considering the severity of your symptoms I would strongly recommend that you be seen in the ER, if you have not been seen already for this.

For the time being you can try taking omeprazole 20 mg twice daily along with gaviscon 2 tablespoons three times a day to see if that helps with your symptoms.

Let me know if you have more questions.
