Good Morning and Welcome to HealingWell,
I do not have any info re HRT and GERD but it is certainly something another member may have input re.
As far as the stomach bug, IMHO, Yes, any sickness in a refluxer can cause a flare up.
I hope you stick with us and that your wife finds something to help her with her reflux.
