GI specialist: How long have you had pain? Any nausea or vomiting or diarrhea? Fever? May be many things- ucler, relfux, hiatal hernia, gallbladder can cause these symptoms. Crohn's requires a work-up, including endocscopy. If this has been going on for more than 3-4 months-see a gastroenterologist.
