In brief: Pain after eating
Pain in the abdomen after eating is most commonly due to 2 conditions: 1) acid reflux; after eating your stomach is distended and is making a lot of acid to digest your food, which can cause pain/discomfort in upper abdomen.
2) irritable bowel syndrome: a crampy condition of the colon usually due to stress, which typically gets worse (with bloating) right after a meal and better after pooping.
