Please help! First time posting

First off thank you so much for reading about my problem. For the last few years I been having this issue with upper left abdominal discomfort. It typically happens after I'm really full from eating I get this mild pain in my upper abdomen and i can get it to feel better by laying down or sitting basically changing my posture and I have also gotten this pain when I'm standing up for an extended period of time and if I sit it feels better. The pain isn't severe just annoying really and usually after I have a really full belly. I been to the doctor before and he said I had a hiatal hernia I just took his word and never went back. I looked up about hiatal hernias and doesn't really sound like what I have. I do get fits of reflux and heartburn I'm not sure if that's realted. Also about 10 years ago I had my gallbladder removed due to gallstones also not sure if that's related. The doctor that said I had a hiatal hernia told me to lose weight and that should help. (I'm about 50 pounds overweight) I'm on a diet now. I just need your opinion of what may be causing this. I'm a bit of hypochondriac and I tend to think the worst. Thank you for reading
