Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Abdominal pain with meals is commonly caused by the gallbladder disease.
Gall stone can cause obstruction to bile flow which occurs with meals to facilitate digestion.
Another possibility can be the ulcer disease.
Lastly this can be acute pancreatitis as well.
Inflammation of pancreas can cause severe symptoms with food.
Given the possibility of gallbladder and pancreas problem, you should consider further evaluation with blood tests ( liver panel, metabolic panel) and CT scan with contrast.
Avoid any solid foods for now.
Drink plenty of fluids, clear liquids as tolerated.
Definitely avoid any fat rich food for now.
