upper abdominal pain unexplained

I have been suffering from upper abdominal pain, constant and worsening when I eat or drink for 8 days.  I have had infrequent diarrhea and I have nausea a lot, usually after I eat.  It seems to be worse when I lie down.  I have a 5 month old and am breastfeeding still.  During my pregnancy I took Maalox regularly and passed a kidney stone i think right before he was born. I don't know why that's relevant, but Im just throwing that out there. I'm not taking any medicines, I don't have any medical conditions, I'm fit, I'm a healthy weight.  It doesnt seem to be getting any better so I don't think I have a stomach flu anymore.  Do these symptoms sound like something else?

If it doesn't get better you could ask your G.P. for a Gastric emptying test where they see if your stomach is emptying properly.
