Apart from IBS, dyspepsia, pancreatitis, myocardial ischemia (heart attack) and lactase deficiency also need to be ruled out. You need to consult your local doctor about these symptoms and he will conduct a few tests like complete blood counts, cardiac enzymes (CK-MB, LDH, SGOT), and ECG (Electrocardiogram) of the heart, a CT scan of the abdomen, and an Upper GI endoscopy to find out the cause of the pain.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Sounds a bit like the symptoms I had when I had gallbladder disease & had to have surgery. I would see your gastroenterologist and tell them your symptoms, being as specific as possible (i.e. - which side (more left or right of belly button, above or below belly button); any foods, drinks or activities that seem to cause the pain or make it worse (fatty foods/drinks, acidic foods/drinks, exercise, bending over).
Best of luck
