Its hard to provide a clear answer to your symptoms. Several things come to mind, gastritis, gall bladder disease, IBS. More information is needed to address this. See a doctor in person

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. Drink more water. Wish you good health!
