In brief: Maybe GERD

This could be gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd) which results from a loose lower esophageal sphincter and/or overproduction of acid.
Also it could be the pancreas, peptic ulcer, gallstones, or hiatal hernia ( the top of the stomach protrudes into the esophagus). Your doctor will be able to to determine what the cause is. In the mean time you can try otc ant-acids to see if that relieves pain.
