What do I do?

I have the flu and can't taste anything AT ALL I feel like I'm eating gulps of air when I'm eating I taste no flavor because I'm so congested what can I do to get my tastes buds back? my stomach hurts I feel like I have air on my left side and it's making me gassy I keep burping and having gas and I feel a little hungry like I didn't eat at all. is it the fact that I can't taste my food? what effect does me not being able to taste my food have on me? and what are some foods I can have that I might be able to taste that have a stronger taste to them

Eat fruits and oatmeal...oatmeal will help you with your stomach issue and you will feel full. Fruits will help you get lots of vitamins and they will be easy on your stomach and help your taste buds.

Salad always tastes good, you should be able to taste the vinegar! There is a lot of people in your shoes. The flu is rampant.
