Stomach Ache And Burping
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
