I am suffering stomach pain when I do not eat on time or when I eat too little than I should eat. I have not much appetide. I only have appetide to eat when I eat sour, hot and spicy food. I feel nausea after I take oily food. I can not eat too much, can not eat too little because it will make me suffer such pain. I will be ok after I lay on my belly on bed and fart later. Sometimes, I ate a lot as I still feel hungry and unable to feel full. Later, stomach started to feel so pain.
Is there anything wrong with my stomach?
Please help. Thanks

you most likely are suffering from dyspepsia. the best medication for your condition is to eat on time. don't skip meals. avoid spicy, sour or high caffeine containing foods for 1 week.
if ever you have hunger pangs/attacks in between meals, you can eat finger foods/snacks (soda crackers or cookies,etc)
as for medications, you can take antacids (aluminum magnesium hydroxide) 30 minutes before meals (3x a day) and 1 before you go to bed for a duration of 2 weeks or more.
