Stomach issues...: Various things could be going on: Most commonly acid reflux and heartburn. Another possibility is gastritis, gallstones, stomach ulcers among others that are less common.If symptoms are severe you need to see your doctor ASAP. If not then you can try OTC antacids(TUMS, Zantac (ranitidine) for example) for now. Also try to avoid fatty and fried foods,sauces, alcohol, spicy food, citric juices, caffeine.
