Thank you for positing your query.

I have noted your symptoms and it appears that you have a gastroenteritis (flu) caused by a viral infection.

This condition is self limiting and would improve on own in a few days.

For relief of symptoms, you could take medications such as pantaprozole for abdominal pain/acidity and paracetamol for fever.

It may be useful to consult a general physician if symptoms persist beyond 5-7 days.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
