User avatar You may have a case of gastritis from the cold you have. Gastritis is inflammatin of the stomach and often can feel very similar to reflux/indigestion.

The mylanta or other antacids may help. You should avoid ibuprofen as it can irritate the stomach lining until you are better.

If you are not getting better, or if you are getting worse, I recommend you see your doctor.

Best wishes.
