Hey Ladies, I need some help! I thought I had the flu this past week, but now I'm not so sure. I've been feeling generally nauseous and having egg burps and diarrhea that comes and goes. I can't figure out if its something I'm eating or if I've picked up an infection or parasite. To help: I don't eat fast food, we have clean sources of drinking water, & no one else in the family is having these symptoms. Any suggestions? Where should I also post this for further brainstorming help on mothering.com??
My dad had the egg-burping with h pelori. It comes with projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea though, so I don't know if it would be that. Our GI systems are being so squished and pushed right now, it's a wonder we're still able to eat! I go from nauseated, to hungry, to heartburn, to gassy, to diarrhea, to constipated in a matter of 24 hours or less! I hope you figure it out soon!

DH gets the egg burps with diarrhea every couple of months, but we've never figured out what the cause is. At first we thought it was from certain kinds of lettuce, but it's happened without eating lettuce so we're back to being stumped. It usually goes away on its own after a day or two, though.
One of my best friends is the victim of sulfur burps, but only during pregnancy. I'm pretty sure it was pregnancy-specific and went away as soon as her babies are born. Needless to say, everyone within close proximity to her was always glad when that babies were earth-side. LOL. I think in her case it was the pregnancy hormones that were just slowing down her digestive tract, so her stomach acid was extra stinky.
