I'm a male in the fifty's. I'm feeling blotted and nauseated for 3 day's. Not throwing up and no diarrhea. feeling pains in stomach upper and lower. caught a cold 5 days ago. mucus is not green.
Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to have few important details. Any pain in the lower right or middle abdomen or pain is only on stomach area? Any fever with it? How's your bowel movements? History of heart burns?

bowel movements daily ,pain is is stomach area, and take prilosec valve doesn't close, not running a fever.feel pain upper stomach at ribs. to lower. to growing s.

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!
