not eating causes pain under left rib cage

I seem to have this lovely problem.  If I don't eat often I get a pain under my left rib cage AND indigestion or a tightening in the chest area with gas (flatulance).  All I have to do is eat to stop the above systems.  I've had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy this year.  They find nothing but seem to think it may be stress related.  I can only go so far with this diagnosis.  I'm more stressed because I have to eat all the time.  I've tried not eating and the pain gets worse with the indigestion and gas.  Therefore I have to make sure I eat often.  It's not fun trying to think of things to eat all the time..especially something low calorie.  
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
