    Does the pain get worse while you are eating during lunch or does it happen after 2 hours. Any blood in your stool or black stools. What is your age? Do you take any medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen etc or other medications such as blood thinners. What are your other medical conditions, or do you have diabetes, high blood pressure.

    If you have any weight loss, blood in your stools or black stools see your doctor immediately.

    Also need to rule out any peptic ulcer disease as Dr Ajay mentioned. if you have this belly pain, radiating to back, check for pancreatitis ( inflammation of pancreas too ) . Sometimes a hiatal hernia can cause symptoms like this. Once any heart ailments ruled out, see a gastroenterologist
