In brief: Epigastric pain

This area can be the result of stomach issues like ulcer disease, possibly gallbladder issues or other upper abdomen diagnoses.
See your primary doctor. He/she will want to know if the pain is related to eating (better or worse), if you significant amounts of alcohol or what the pain is.. Is it burning, sharp, does it migrate, how long has the discomfort been going on, etc. See your doctor!
