In brief: Lots

Literally-- esophagus, stomach, colon, pancreas, gallbladder, spleen, diaphragm. Occasionally even lung/ cardiac issues can masquerade as abdominal pain.
Need more specifics i'm afraid.

In brief: Lots!

Upper abdominal organs include the liver, spleen, stomach, gallbladder, portions of the colon and small intestine, and pancreas.
Pain may also originate from the abdominal wall, ie epigastric hernia.

Is it sharp or achy? Is it every time or only sometimes? What type? How long does it last? Anything make it better? Anything make it worse? Does food affect the pain? Have you had any surgery ? How long has it been there? Have you tried any medications? Did they work? Did you injure yourself? Pulled muscle etc? Has anyone done any studies? Gallbladder? Gastritis? Any nausea? Fevers?
