It could be: Several problems could cause abdominal burning sensation but the most common would be stomach irritation (gastritis) or even stomach ulcers. Less likely would be gallbladder problems or other intestinal problems. To figure out the actual cause you may need upper endoscopy (egd) which is very effective at diagnosing ulcers and gastritis and is a quick 5 minute procedure done with light IV sedation.
