Heartburn after having stomach flu, no vomiting only diarrhea, fever and aches. Tums and organic vinager don't help. What would help the heartburn?
Try an H2 blocker: Some people develop heartburn after a stomach flu even without vomiting, because the stomach flu may have caused gastroesophageal reflux, and irritation to the esophagus.
