Burning feeling upper stomach directly below rib cage. No other symptoms. Ulcer perhaps?

In brief: Pain

Ulcer presentation is usually more than just pain - indigestion, nausea, heartburn, pain with relation to food ingestion.
Although, if you are taking Ibuprofen and other nsaids, the chance of ulcer is definitely higher. Stop those. Try zantac (ranitidine) or priosec, see if it helps.
