    Based on the information, I think it is duodenal ulcer but it can also be nonulcer pain. Do you have a family history of duodenal ulcer. Duodenal ulcer can also be caused by alcohol, nicotine,caffeine,tobacco, taking NSAID's  aspirin, brufen e.t.c. The most common cause is the infection with H.Pylori. Does the pain cause you to wake up in the midnight. About fifty percent of patients with duodenal ulcers awake during the night with pain, usually between midnight and three a.m. Duodenal ulcers respond well to treatment, so relax and get yourself checked.

Low vitamin D levels will cause this because without D your stomach can't absorb calcium which will lead to cramping from dehydration

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The symptoms could be exacerbation of the GERD. Treatment is a combination of drugs to reduce the acid and lifestyle changes. You will need to take a combination of medications like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole,  lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals for complete relief. Possibility of H pylori infection too should be looked into and a combination antibiotic tried.
Life style changes that will help include: Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees. Go to bed at least 2 hours after food. Maybe these tips will help you.
You should consult a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system) or a physician for this if these tips reduce your symptoms.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Soda depleats minerals and without enough minerals we become acidic which is where all diseases come from. Our bodies were meant to have an acid/ alkaline balance but most american diets with all the acidic foods we eat throw that balance out of whack. Soda is the worst. Investigate acid/alkaline balance and take a good cal/mag supplement and 5000iu of vitamin D aday because without it you cannot absorb calcium.
