Gastric ulcer?: It's possible you have a stomach ulcer. These typically cause sharp pains with eating. Your stomach actually lies to the left of your middle. If you had inflammation of the pancreas, likely you wouldn't be hungry, you'd be nauseated, possibly vomit. Your doctor might want to check for the bacteria causing ulcers, H pylori, in your stool.
