Dreadful diarrhea: Diarrhea that is lasting 4 days in duration could be something serious- especially if there are real volume losses of fluids. Signs to watch out for are fever, light headedness, passing out, cramps or blood in the stool. If you have any of those you need an MD right away. If you have been on antibiotics within the last few months, you may need a check for C.diff as well. In the meantime drink alot ...Read more

Burping and nausea: This is possibly due to a viral gastroenteritis which would fit the time frame of your symptoms but it can also be due to gastritis or a gastric/duodenal ulcer including a type of infection called helicobacter pylori. Another possibility is gall bladder disease. I would suggest that you hydrate well despite the nausea and diarrhea but you need to be checked out by a physician. Remember to drink! ...Read more

I need to know weather I need to go to the doctor tomorrow or go to the ER today? I have bumps that itch all over my body but I have had chicken pox 3 times already, I have diarehea and rotten egg burps I have a runny nose and a sore throat should I go

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your condition. The combination of a rash, abdominal discomfort, headache, diarrhea, burping, sore throat and a runny nose could be caused by a viral infection. If you develop a fever of 104 or greater that is a reason to seek urgent care. If you develop difficulty breathing or swelling of tongue or throat that is an emergency. Because of diarrhea, you need to be drinking water to avoid dehydration. If inspite of attempts to remain hydrated; you develop a high resting pulse rate and you feel dizzy upon getting up, that means you might have still become dehydrated. If you can't remain adequately hydrated, you may need to be seen at an emergency room for intravenous hydration. Currently, you are not describing symptoms that would dictate a emergency evaluation. However, if your situation worsens, you may need to consider that option. I hope that you feel better soon. Take care. ...Read more

In some, belching can become habitual. ...Read more
