Thanks for the details. I would like to say that your symptoms are suggestive of acid-peptic disease induced complications as viral flu can trigger the symptoms of acid-reflux or GERD. Also important to rule out any liver inflammation although less likely. I will suggest to continue taking Prilosec 40 mg one tablet daily half hour before breakfast. Also important to avoid spicy or junk food, avoid alcohol and pain killers. You can also try Pepto-bismol for three to four day. I will suggest in either case to see your physician for examination and tests if this persist or get worse. Take probiotics in diet.If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don't hesitate to ask!Please remember to only rate my answer when you are satisfied.
