Ok I am typing my answer please give me some time.
Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Thankyou
Expert:  Caring doc replied 17 days ago.
Respected customer, I suspect the pain is related to stomach acidity, or acid reflux. I would recommend to try tablet Famotidine 20mg once a day, and tablet tums three times a day 1 to 2 tablets after meals.
You should take tablet tylenol 500 mg right now, with Tablet Famotidine or any acid lowering medications if you have.
If you have a syrup like Gaviscon you can take that.
If the pain continues to be same severe after couple of hours or get worse go to ER right away because it can be medical emergency like acute cholecystitis,acute Gastritis or pancreatitis.
I hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any questions please.
I would be glad to help you further.
Thanks a lot for visiting Justanswer:)
