your gallbladder isnt functioning properly...go and get an ultrasound...if inconclusive get a HIDA scan and that should show anything wrong

I have the same burping rotten eggs, and then after I get sick Stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea, I have been looking for answers for a long time. No dr. has found an answer. I have given up on them and am  doing research online and I have found several people with the same symptoms.  I don't know if your husband has the same exact symptoms but one person said it was bile gerd they had a acid reflux surgery and has not had any symptoms for 11/2 yrs. Another person got on a gluten free diet and has not had symptoms for almost a year. I forgot the site I was on but If I remember or find it Ill tell you. I right now am trying a gluten free diet just started but I will let you know the end results

I suffered from the same symptoms, and my Doctor diagnosed me with a Pyloric Stenosis and did an endoscopy, during which he performd a balloon procedure to stretch the Pyloric Sphincter.  Stretching done, food gets through, no more stinky burps, bloating, diarrhea.  But that's just me.

i also had the problem 4mts back, untill i spoke to a doctor who said i have to get an endoscopy etc then we discussed the causes and found out that there was a pattern to the occurence. it happened mostly when i had my food and lay down immediately to watch tv!.
i started sitting for at least 1 hr after each meal and it stopped.
apart from that i found out that taking UNIENZYME after a heavy meal help a lot
