Dyspepsia: This could be symptomatic of GERD. Unlikely to represent a metastatic cancer. The partial relief with passing gas and the use of PPIs points to a temporary but repeating condition. The spinal pain is a bit unusual for GERD; it is more likely to be referred pain form say the gallbladder, but even that is a bit unusual - GB pain refers to the upper back and shoulder. See a gastroenterologist.

Go see Board Certified Gastroenterologist. While waiting to b seen, you can take Nexium daily and take various measures to reduce reflux. Look up the topic GERD.
