Stomach pain when hungry

I have been skipping my breakfast for almost six months due to working late into the night and geting up late. For the past one week I've had mild stomach pain and pass gas when I'm hungry (3-4 hours after previous meal). I feel immediate relief after eating even a small meal. If I eat a small meal before sleeping, I wake 5 to 6 hours into my sleep with a clenched stomach and mild gas passing, which is relieved on eating. But eating complex carbs help me sleep without disturbance. My motion is solid but not solid as usual. Can you tell me what the problem is and the solution?

Hi..... Eat smaller, more-frequent meals. If you experience frequent indigestion, try eating several small meals instead of three large ones whenever you can.... Avoid irritating foods. Avoid foods that irritate your stomach, especially those that are spicy, acidic, fried or fatty.... .Avoid alcohol. Alcohol can irritate the mucous lining of your stomach... Eat at regular times. Don't skip meals, and try to eat about the same time each day to help regulate bowel function.....
