You: You are suffering from acid reflux (stomach producing too much acid that is refluxing into your esophagus and causing belching).You need to start taking an over the counter medication like Pepcid (famotidine) or prilosec. In addition, reduce acidic and spicy foods, decrease caffeine intake, and chocolate as well.
Often time this acid reflux can be a clue to more serious problems like stomach ulcers or esophagitis. Therefore I recommend you visit your primary care doctor for work up and treatment for this problem.
Best of luck. ...Read more

Unlikely, but...: This is not unusual and any life change can be a part of why. Try Pepto-bismal or other antacid but it it continues as a Dr for a GI exam - may be giardia. Drink water more and watch your diet - be gentle and moderate. A few sips of diluted cider vinegar can help - some add a tiny pinch of baking soda. Best! ...Read more

Then time to consult a physician if not better in a couple of weeks. ...Read more

My upper abdomen hurts and into upper back. I get rotten egg / sewer smelling burps and nausea. I'm weak and dizzy a lot. Have lupus and fibromyalgia?

My upper abdomen hurts and into upper back. I get rotten egg / sewer smelling burps and nausea. I'm weak and dizzy a lot. Have lupus and fibromyalgia?

Possible causes: Include a parasite called giardia lamblia, or a bacteria called helicobacter pylorii slow gastric emptying time can also cause this due to the acid in your stomach causing breakdown of proteins releasing sulfur containing products such as methionine. The fact that you are having abdominal pain makes me think that the most likely cause is a h pylorii infection which can cause gastritis or a stomach ulcer. If you have severe abdominal pain lasting more than four hours, as a rule you should go to the emergency room for evaluation. If you develop severe diarrhea, the more likely cause is giardia. Gastroesophageal reflux disease can also cause this. Best wishes. ...Read more

I sometimes get a bad stomach ache and my burps smell like eggs and I also get very dizzy and blackout for a second. Is this acid reflux?

I sometimes get a bad stomach ache and my burps smell like eggs and I also get very dizzy and blackout for a second. Is this acid reflux?

Yes: Some of it is - the burping and stomach pain; the egg smell is hydrogen sulfide which can be produced in the stomach. Blacking out and getting dizzy may be a vagal reaction from belching, but I would see a physician about it. Blacking out, even for a second, is a serious symptom and can result in injury if it occurred while driving or even crossing a street. See your doctor. ...Read more

I: I cannot diagose your abdominal problems. However having burps that smell like rotten eggs is also called "sulfur belching". There can be a number of possible causes. One is that you may have an infection of your gut such as h. Pyloribacterium or giardia. Egg burps can occur with problems involving the stomach or the gallbladder. If you have are having a problem breaking down foods such as meats this can be problematic. Have you traveled anywhere recently where the food or water might be contaminated? I don't know how long you have had these symptoms. Since you are losing fluids from diarrhea, it is important to drink water. If you start feeling lightheaded, especially when going from lying to standing, your pulse rate is very rapid and you feel weak, you may be getting dehydrated. If this occurs you might need to go to the emergency room for intravenous hydration. If the symptoms continue for several days I recommend calling your doctor. ...Read more

Belching that tastes and smells like sulphur (rotton eggs) usually followed by a painful stomach ache. This lasts till I puke up. What can this be?

I am not sure: At all mainly since you are so young. Your complaint is usually the case of motility namely gastric emptying problems. Other option is infestation with a single cell parasite giardia lamblia but this goes with diarrhea you do not mention.
I suggest see a GI specialist to check your stomach emptying. If that would be confirmed, blood test r/o an auto immune condition is in place. ...Read more
