You can get a stomach ache for many reasons. The cause can be obvious, for example in case of food poisoning or menstrual pain.

Gastric ulcer means that ulcers have formed in the lining of the stomach or duodenum. Most people with stomach ulcers get stomach upset, usually in the middle of the upper part of the stomach. Stomach ulcers are usually caused by a bacterium, but even some medications can cause stomach ulcers. Most people become good at treatment.
Heartburn is caused by the fact that the upper abdomen cannot hold completely tightly but permits some gastric juice from the stomach up to the esophagus.
Between the stomach and the esophagus is the upper stomach. If it does not hold tightly, the contents of the stomach can be pushed up into the esophagus. It is called gastroesophageal reflux. If the stomach contents that are upset affect the child negatively, it is called gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Dyspepsia is the collective name for various symptoms that you may have in the upper abdomen. For example, you may feel sore or have a burning sensation in the stomach. Dyspepsia may be due to a disease, but most often the doctor does not find any cause for dyspepsia. Dyspepsia is therefore often called a sensitive stomach.
