Doctor can evaluate: Upper abdominal pain can be from acid pains, such as a stomach ulcer, gastritis without ulcer, or stomach reflux (heartburn). An infection with H. pylori bacteria can lead to stomach ulcer pains. One needs more evaluation by her primary care doctor. Heart disease, pancreatitis, gallstones, or twisting or obstruction of a blood vessel or small bowel can cause upper abdominal pain.
