In brief: Vitamins cause pain
There are many possibilities.
Vitamin pills contain many ingredients and often have several different types of fillers. One of the commonest nutrients to cause stomach pain is iron. You may be sensitive to other constituents eg chemical fillers. If the pills have iron then get a food source multivitamin without iron and try that for several days to see if the pain clears up.
