GI disturbance: Sounds like a gastrointestinal malady of some sort. Think about inflammation of the esophagus ("food pipe"), or the stomach itself. Less likely would be the irritable bowel syndrome. I'd begin by trying over the counter zantac (ranitidine) or Omeprazole for say 2-3weeks. If not substantially better then time to seek out a GI specialist.
