Sounds

Abdomen
muscular especially if all your symptoms are gastrointestinal and not respiratory. Give it a couple days to resolve unless you begin to develop cough, chest discomfort or other respiratory symptoms. If so then see your doctor.

Stomach bug, side effects of prilosec; anything worrisome?

Headache, diarrhea

Prilosec
If you're referring to headache and diarrhea, these are both very common Prilosec side effects that should resolve once the drug is discontinued. Many other acid blockers in the PPI class share these side effects. Worrisome symptoms however, unrelated to Prilosec but that mimic a "stomach bug" would include: bleeding, weight loss, persistent vomiting, signs of gut obstruction. See doc if concerned
