The symptoms you have mentioned are suggestive of acute gastritis. The other symptoms include nausea, back pain, burning sensation in the chest along with abdominal (epigastrium) pain. This may be sometimes due to the contraceptive pills, which you are taking daily. I would suggest you to take plenty of fluids, antacids like omeprazole 20 mg daily before food, antispasmodics like spasmo proxyvon. Please avoid taking of spicy and oily foods. Meanwhile you can consult your GP for complete examination and proper treatment.
