You will need to see your doctor to examine you and send for some blood and possibly stool test. What you are describing sounds like a medical condition we call gastric ulcer.
It could also be due to just irritation of thelining of your stomach called gastritis. There is a bug called Helicobacter pylori that tends to cause such problem in a lot of cases. Your GP might send you for a stool test or breath test to exclude that as a cause of the gastritis. So please book and appointment to see your doctor as soon as you can.
The goodnews is that there are also medications to treat this, if it is due to gastritis or stomach ulcer. Hope this helps.
