It is severe gastritis. It has resulted in dyspepsia and gas formation. Take bland diet fresh fruits and vegetable, refrain taking alcohol and tobacco. Avoid spicy thing and food from outside. Take properly filtered. Take tablet omeprazole and Unienzyme. You have flu, which is self-limiting. Yoga and meditation can help you. You can take polycrol gel.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
