All of my life I have has bouts of sour stomache.  I consider it VERY BAD, I belch a lot and the smell is awful.  It usually smells like rotten eggs or a sulfer factory.
Plus there is a bad taste in my mouth, I can't brush my teeth enough. I have a lot of gas too. My stomache is bloated and I am uncomfortable too much of the time.
I'm not sure what the problem is...When I was growing up I remember being told it was a lack acid in my stomache and the food
was rotting in my stomache.  My DR. now told me to take prilosec. I have been and it still doesn't help. Any insight about what this problem could be and what I can
do would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

Dear Annie,
Ask your doctor to assess your gastrointestinal motility.  Impaired gastric emptying (assessed by a radioistope gastric emptying study) may orivide tha exolanation for your symptom.  If you stomach does not empty appropriately, food may stay in the stomach for an extended time.  Bacterial`overgrowth and fermentation of food could be the cause for your symptoms.
