In brief: SEVERAL
Upper abdomen symptoms could be due to gallbladder disease (infection, stones), gastric (stomach) ulcer, duodenal ulcer, pancreatitis, liver disease (e.
g. Hepatitis) and others. You should get seen for blood tests (e.g. Liver, pancreas enzymes)& abdomen ultrasound to sort out these possibilities. You may need stomach 'scope' (egd) if any warning signs: vomiting blood, black stools, severe pain.
