Pulmonologist 's  Response
It seems that your upper respiratory infection has travelled down to your lower respiratory tract and you may have developed lung infection. The pain could be pleuritic due to involvement of pleura. You should get at least a xray chest, routine blood count and a USG abdomen to rule out sub diaphramatic pathology. If these are normal it could be simple gastritis as a result of medicines you have taken and you should take pantaprozole for this. But if the ivestigations point to wards a infection, you will need a course of broad spectrum antibiotics and other symptomatic treatment for which you should consult a physician or pulmonologist.
