Pain below rib cage

I am having internal pain below the rib cage area on the left side. This starts after I have some food. I have tried avoiding acidic food but it is still persisting. The bowel movement is quite normal. But the pain keeps persisting and increases if I lie down on the left side or cough

try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can...Avoid foods that irritate your stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty... avoid coffee,tea etc... Avoid Stress as it may make your gastritis symptoms worse...consider calming activities, such as meditation, yoga etc...sleep with head raised position and have dinner at least 2 hours before sleep..take over the counter medications with above..consult physician if symptoms persists.
