complaints of upper stomach pain and complaints that you experience there are several possible causes, among them:
indigestion: indigestion due to satiety, consuming too much spicy and oily food, and consuming alcoholic beverages while eating.

The reason is because when you lie down after eating, the gas in the stomach will be pushed up through the throat resulting in an increase in stomach acid.
