  1. While the reason is clear, stop drinking coffee. Your body has acquired a weakness that it did not have before. Sometimes, that’s because of age. It is also possible that your stomach mucous has weakened for some reason. Visit your doctor. Hopefully, it will only be a gastritis and he will give you the right treatment.

  2. Do you eat anything before drinking the coffee? I have to eat before I drink coffee or I get a very upset stomach and can even get sick. I didn’t used to be this way either, but have found as I get older my stomach can not handle the caffeine as well. Try eating before or with the coffee and it may help.

  3. I’ve had this same issue and when I went to a doctor I was given some possibilities.
    Stomach acid – Coffee is acidic, but it’s not the actual acidity in coffee that is the problem. it’s your bodies response. Coffee causes your body to produce stomach acid and if you drink coffee on an empty stomach, that can lead to all sorts of problems. Long term increased acid production can wreck havoc on your gastric system.
    Stress – physiologic stress can lead to inflammation of the stomach, known as stress-induced gastritis. … The stress response of the body results in the decrease of gastric renewal , leading to atrophy of the gastric mucosa. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK499926/
    Basically, the more stressed you are, the less protective mucous lining you will tend to have. If you have increased acid output from coffee and decreased stomach mucous to protect you from that acid, then you are looking at serious gastro issues.
    Caffeine – caffeine may also mess with your body’s normal functioning. “Cortisol increases sugar production in the body,” Lee says. “In excess, sugar causes insulin to be released, and when insulin is secreted over a long period of time, it increases inflammation, which is one of the building blocks of chronic disease.” retrieved from → Is Caffeine Turning You into a Monster?
    Age – This one sucks because I recently became the victim of this. The older you are, the more you will feel the effects of coffee, caffeine in particular and this can have a tremendous impact on stomach well being. This is directly from the mouth of a couple of doctors actually. I loooooove coffee. So when I had begun developing issues with nervousness and other stomach symptoms, I went to the doctor. He told me to cut back my caffeine intake. I said, “Oh, nuh uh.” I went to another doctor, Dr. Google, he said the same thing. Ok, so the best 2 out of 3 doctors wasn’t working, how about best 3 of 5? I went to one of those online chat doctors, What was the third doctor’s verdict? Cut back on caffeine, you don’t need as much and obviously cannot handle as much as you could when you were younger.
    Basically, you need to cut back for a while and give yourself time to heal from whatever issues are going on and then come back to coffee slowly. If you cut back from coffee and the abdominal pain does not subside, you might have other gastric issues such as ulcers or gastritis or whatever else that will require a doctors attention.
