So I had the flu last week and its made it rounds in the house. Now ever since I had it I get as what I describe as acid reflux. I have never experienced this before. I am burping up acid with a lot of things I normally eat. For instance I wanted a pb&j sandwich, left my throat feeling like it was burning and most things I am use to eating seem to do the same. It's just strange. I hope this will go away and just be symptoms left behind from the flu. Anyone experience this also?

Just to update .. I had the stomach flu.

My whole house is down with the flu right now :( I'm not having heartburn issues but my husband if so hopefully it will clear up. I told him I thought it was from taking so much medication on an empty stomach.

No, but 3 weeks later I'm still sick!  I even caught it DAY 1!!  I still have the very stuffy nose, inability to taste anything, and exhaustion!  Flu sucks.

Ugh, I got bronchitis halfway through the flu too.

My heartburn has gotten a bit worse it seems.

I was taking anti nausea meds for a few days, but the burning feeling has not stopped. The only way it makes it feel some what Better is a cold drink. It's just odd

I never had heart burn before so I don't really know if what I have is similar. I just know its annoying and burping causes the acid to come up. I just wish it will disappear

Yes it does. I was sick for a few days which were the worst. Now I just have no energy and I am easily exhausted.
I know that they say it can last anywhere fro a few days till weeks. My fear is I will get sick again because every one is sick but with different symptoms then I had :(
