I have watery diarrhea 
 sometimes vomit and when it first started I burped a lot and it tasted like boiled egg? what's wrong? I don't have fever

Egg-smelling burps: are caused by sulfur-containing foods (red meat, eggs, dairy products, garlic, onions, cabbage, asparagus, broccoli). Cashews, bananas, coffee and cola are guilty as well. A GI infection with helicobacter or giardia may be to blame, medications, heavy meals full of complex proteins. Eat wisely, cutting back on the foods mentioned above. Stay well hydrated, add honey/lemon to a.m. warm water. ...Read more

I have had watery diarrhea for 2 days, there is almost nothing solid. I have had colitis in the past but the symptoms feel completely different. ?

I have had watery diarrhea for 2 days, there is almost nothing solid. I have had colitis in the past but the symptoms feel completely different. ?

Diarrhea: There are many potential causes for this. One of the more common is viral infection with agents like norwalk, rotovirus, etc. Of course, clostridium difficile is also a worry. Would wait a few days and if this does not clear see a doctor. In the interim stay well hydrated. The term "colitis" simply means inflammation of the colon (large bowel) and does not address the cause. Good luck. ...Read more
