EGD: If pain is persistent for such long duration of time then you should consult your doctor to possibly get egd ( endoscopy) to look for possible gastric ulcers. Also if that comes back negative a possible ct abdomen might be needed. A detail physical exam is the first step though.

Gastric ulcers are curable. If found to be present then further testing is done to confirm that H.Pylori ( bacteria) is not contributing to the problem as additional treatment might be needed for that
