Upper : Upper stomach pain can be caused by acid reflux from the stomach (gerd-gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastritis (irritation to the stomach lining), or even simple indigestion. Pain on the right upper stomach can be caused by gallstones, which is more common in middle-aged women, usually radiates to the back, is worse about 30 minutes after eating, and often accompanied by nausea or vomiting. Kidney pain can cause pain in the right upper abdomen but is usually more towards the back (flank area). If pain is associated with vomiting, fever, or inability to eat then a medical evaluation is typically warranted.
