I am 25 years old and for the last 10 years of my life, every month or so I get sick, starting with burps that taste exactly like rotten eggs (sulfur), extremely putrid, raunchy taste and smell. Within an hour or so I have horrible diarrhea and usually I have to throw everything in my stomach up to get rid of this. Whatever I throw up is always very strong smelling, like rotten eggs. I did start taking tagament and fiber pills to regulate bowel movements and for a year I had no problem, now they are back with a vengeance no matter what I do. I miss a lot of work because of this, I've had tests run, doctors don't know what to make of it, others that I've found on the internet with this problem have gotten no answers. It feels like this is some unknown disease that is incurable, and I don't know how much more I can take. Please help, anyone!
i have exactly the same symptoms - although mine return every 7-10 days..my gastro has put me on flagel several times, and it eliminates the problem when i am on it and for around 2 months after i stop taking it, but it always returns...very frustrating
Yes, I was treated for Hpylori and finished the antibiotics over a week ago, I'm still on Nexium, but the problem has returned, once while I was taking the antibiotics, and once after I finished. I have an appointment with a gastrointestinal specialist next week, but I really don't expect anything to come out of it, no one seems to know what this is. I doubt the Hpylori had anything to do with it as I've had this problem for ten years.
i have crohn's but it seems all my life i've also had your problem. i thought i was just one of those that can't pass gas without clearing the room, then my doctor put me on colestid for diarea. not only did it help the diarhes but the rotten eggs are completely gone.
