Burping and it taste like boiled eggs I have not eaten any eggs.

Burping and it taste like boiled eggs I have not eaten any eggs.

It: It sounds as though you may be suffering from gastro-esophageal reflux disease (gerd). The most common symptoms of gerd are:

- heartburn
- sore throat
- "lump in the throat" sensation or difficulty swallowing
- acidic or sour taste in your mouth (some people describe a rotten egg-type taste)
- dry cough
- hoarseness
- regurgitation (wet burps)

dairy products such as yogurt or milkshakes can give some relief - milk has antacid properties. You can also try over the counter antacid medications such as Tums (calcium carbonate) or maalox. It is important to discuss these symptoms with your doctor. There are many other antacid and acid blocker medications that can help alleviate your symptoms if your symptoms continue. In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to help:

- avoid spicy, acidic, or fatty foods
- avoid alcohol and caffeine
- quit smoking if you smoke
- avoid tight clothing - especially tight belts and pants
- eat small meals
- do not eat for a few hours before going to bed.

Good luck! ...Read more

I feel like I want to burp and I end up puking and coughing. I'm an ex smoker, am I going to die?

I don't think so: You took me by surprise when I read the beginning of your question and then the last 3 words. Just how much are you vomiting and coughing? Certainly, if you're having spasms of coughing or if vomiting is so voluminous that you literally think you're "gonna die" then, it's time to get in to your doc or the ER. Depending. But I think it's probably an easy fix. Just stay hydrated and see your doc. ...Read more
