Sulphur burps and diarrhea

I've had very loose stool/diarrhea for the past month and a half.  That being said, I recently have been burping up horrible sulphur smell/taste.  It makes my stomach so sick!  I've had my stool tested and it all came back good.  Any idea of what it could be and where I should go next?

Hi there!
The smell of rotten eggs comes from sulphur containing foods, dairy products,eggs,red meat,milk,cabbage,broccoli,mustards ,onion, sweet potatoes, vitamin B1 ,biotin,legumes,peas,beans  ,walnuts, almonds are all sulphur containing  foods. Parasitic infestations like giardia lamblia, fructose intolerance can also cause sulphur burps. Other causes are celiac disease, Crohn’s disease etc.Reduce the consumption of sulphur containing foods. If your symptoms still persist you will need evaluation by a doctor. You may need stool culture tests for parasites and ova and may be other tests depending on the cause. Hope it helps.
Good luck!
