I've been getting these "rotten egg burps" in past few days, but it happened before usually after I've eaten poultry. This week they came on without the aid of chicken or eggs or any kind of meat at all. What can be a reason for it?
I have same problem “rotten egg burps", so I went to several doctors over the years, but none have had any idea what I was talking about. They happen to me after a night of full on pizza and coke, and a simple solution that I discovered is water. Just have plenty of it and you’ll be cured, it happens when you have a lack of water and too much of something that’s not good for you.
Giardiasis can show itself in different ways. Some people can be carriers of the parasite and have no symptoms of the disease, but they pass cysts in their stool and pass the disease to others. Others may develop acute or chronic diarrheal illnesses in which the symptoms occur 1-2 weeks after swallowing the cysts.
Acute diarrheal illness
Diarrhea: Up to 90% of people with giardiasis complain of diarrhea. Stool is usually described as profuse and watery early in the disease. Later in the disease, stools become greasy, foul smelling, and often float. Blood, pus, and mucus are usually not present. Symptoms may last for 1 to several weeks.
Weight loss, loss of appetite
Bloating, abdominal cramping, passing excessive gas, sulfur-tasting burps
Occasional nausea, vomiting, fever, rash, or constipation
Chronic diarrheal illness
Diarrhea: Stools are often greasy, foul smelling, yellowish, and may alternate between diarrhea and constipation.
Abdominal pain worsens with eating
antibiotics my friend
My name is Mark and I'm 25 years old. My symptoms aren't as severe as some of the ones I've seen in this thread, but I remember that I got sick from eating something at a Burger King one night back in July/August 2008, and the next morning I had Sulphur burps (rotten egg burps) and then an hour later I was on the toilet stool with the worst diarrhea I've ever had in my life. My stomach looked like it was regurgitating the whole time, and it was coming out like water. Basically almost like I was peeing from my anus. I know that's pretty graphic but that's the best way to describe it. I had diarrhea the whole day pretty much, until my body was empty of every food and fluid. Afterwards I thought I was cured.
But since then, I've been experiencing the Sulphur burps on and off almost like once every 2 weeks or so. I just now woke up this morning with the rotten egg burps again, but what's weird is I've never puked or vomited. And since my first episode with that major diarrhea, I don't even get that anymore. The only symptom is the rotten egg burps. I don't know what to do to cure it. I've been taking a pro-biotic pill which seems to suppress the sulphur burps later on in the day, but I want them to just never come back altogether! I really need to know if anyone has any advice with my symptoms, because they seem weird to me.
Why would I get the worst Diarrhea during my first episode with the rotten egg burps, but then the next times I've had it, the only symptoms were the rotten egg burps? There must be some sort of parasite in our bodies or something. It seems to be many different foods that cause it, so I doubt it has anything to do with what you eat. If anyone has any answers please contact me.
Please someone email me if you know a cure for my symptoms or if you are experiencing the same ones for yourselves! Thanks and GODSPEED!
I'm a 55 year old woman and I've had this disorder since I was about
15, 40 years now. I've had years between bouts and I've had bouts
weeks apart really no one thing I could see caused it. Maybe stress,
good and bad types. I decided it was a disorder, something inside wasn't
working properly. I'm a very healthy person otherwise I eat everything
a very varied diet. Sometimes I think fatty meals can provoke it yet most of the time it doesn't. My neice was born with pyloric stenosis, she had surgery when she was a few weeks old, my grandmother and her sister
both went to bed sick complaining of rotten eggs, my mother tells me.
I wonder if it is our pyloric valve not functioning properly?
I've given up on doctors, I had all the tests since teen episodes always
normal. When I change doctors and mention this they all act like they never heard of it. The only thing that helps me is sleep, I become so sleepy between vomiting and diarrhea I sleep, eventually I sleep it off.
When it passes I feel great again.
I'm pretty sure it's genetic since my grandmother and aunt seemed to have the same thing.
I feel so much better knowing I'm not the only person with such a strange
disorder, I used to think so.
For over a year I had this problem accsionally. It was horrible. Eveb the smell of food cooking would cause me to throw up
anyway, all this for me to basically suggest that you have your gall bladder checked. there are lots of other causes of the rotten egg burps apparently, but with the other symptoms you listed, it sounds alot like what im going through! (but mine has started to alternate from runny bowels to so constipated that it gets impacted since its gone on so long. yuck) ..
so, goodluck and ask your dr to check that out for you..
goodluck to everyone suffering this nasty and horribly embarassing problem of rotten egg burps! i dont even want to be around anyone, i cant control them when they come. its more like air coming up from my stomach and coming out than a belch, no noise with them, just a passing of nasty foul air. my old stinky kitty was asleep on my bed and i had one, it woke her up and she left the room.. and this cat deals with her own smells that we have to suffer through, so it really must have been BAD. because as bad as it smells to ME, it smells worse to other people. burps, farts, body oder, its always like that. if we can smell it, other people can REALLY smell it! so im basically hiding in my room with a strong air freshener plugged up and grossing myself out with it! so, goodluck to all of you.
