Hi, burning pain is usually due to peptic ulcer disease and it can be referred to the back. They commonly occur in the stomach and duodenum. Stomach ulcers cause pain on eating and duodenal ulcers cause pain on fasting (2-3 hrs after eating). Peptic ulcers are eroded areas in the lining of the digestive tract usually in the stomach and duodenum. The two common causes for this are: infection with helicobacter pylori and use of nonsteroidal  anti inflammatory medications (NSAID).

Medical treatment for healing of ulcer is Proton pump inhibitors like omeprazole for 2 weeks which will reduce acid secretion and heal the ulcer. Eradication of H-pylori infection (an organism found in the bowel) by using antibiotics will promote ulcer healing. Regards.
