I have had diyahhera nausea and feces smelling burps for the past 24 hours. Could anyone tell me if this is just the stomach flu?
Maybe not.: If your breath smells like feces, this could mean that you have something more serious than a stomach virus, like a partial obstruction. If you are taking Imodium (loperamide) stop it!

Food Poisoning: Vomiting is the body's response to food poisoning as it attempts to rid itself of the toxin or bacteria. I wouldn't suggest attempting medication at this time. Even something mild like Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Mylanta is likely to induce more vomiting at this time. Hydration is key so encouraging water in sips as tolerated may be most helpful at this time. ...Read more
