Where exactly?
Just below the breast bone or somewhere else?

Yes just below my breast bone. I look like a full term pregnancy

So this can be a problem with the stomach[no emptying for example].
Or with the small bowel [partial obstruction.]
You need an exam, maybe imaging or CT depending on exam.
Other possibilities are ulcer, gastritis or small bowel overgrowth.
Gallbladder problems are also possible.
You should be seeing an internal medicine doctor about this.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
