Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini, Gastroenterologist and I am pleased to answer your query.
This is not just flu.
The upper abdominal pain may be due to peptic ulcer disease. Other possibilities are pancreatitis or gall bladder disease.
Take tablet rabeprazole for relief.
If you do not find relief, then you may need to undergo tests like endoscopy, ultrasound scan of the abdomen and certain blood tests.
I hope that answers your question.
