My mother has abdominal pain predominantly over the upper abdomen. It occurs especially after having food (spicy food, food from outside). It is associated with distension and feeling of fullness and nausea. Does not get relieved on medications such as antacids or pantoprazole. Gets relieved spontaneously after 4 to 5 hrs. No aggravating factors. Has flatulence.

Hello... I think its due to indigestion and it can be often helped with lifestyle changes, including:
Eating smaller, more frequent meals.
Avoiding triggers. Fatty and spicy foods, processed foods, carbonated beverages, caffeine, alcohol and smoking can trigger indigestion.
Maintaining a healthy weight. Excess pounds put pressure on your abdomen, pushing up your stomach and causing acid to back up into your esophagus.
Exercising regularly. Exercise helps you keep off extra weight and promotes better digestion.
Managing stress. Create a calm environment at mealtime. Practice relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing, meditation or yoga. Spend time doing things you enjoy. Get plenty of sleep....Kindly consult a dietician for further queries...
