In brief: Upper abdominal pain

Anatomically, upper abdomen includes: spleen, pancreas, stomach, descending duodenum, splenic ; hepatic flexures of the colon, associated vessels, liver, gallbladder, biliary tree.
Don't forget the diaphragm, heart, ; lower chest/lungs are pretty close by. The abdominal musculature, ribs, ; skin can all contribute as well to localizing pain. Get help asap if in as much pain as you describe.
