Egg burping foul burps - sulphur burps

My hubby started having belly cramps around 330. He just got over the stomach bug and decided to start eating regular again. He had pizza, soda, chocolate, apple, and off and on ginger ale and water. Around 730 at night he was pacing and irritable. He already tried peptones and 6 gas relief pills. Unfortunately it did not work. At 800 I decided to do some research and found that baking soda and water is a common home remedy. At this point he was willing to try anything. This was recommended occasionally. 1 tabl spoon of bs and a half of glass ( large glass) of water. He told me it tasted disgusting and within 2 minutes vomited brown puke fiercely in the toilet. I never heard him belch that loud. My husband says immediately he felt better after he threw up. It is 900 now and he has burping and farting less. He also has he rounds really bad and was unable to use the bathroom. He finally looks as if he is comfortable.

Be a little cautious with the baking soda remedy. Some people let out a few large belches but my hubby said it felt like a balloon inside him that was going to pop and bam he vomited.

Update - through the night he experienced diarreah and white gray stuff. However when he woke up he said he felt like a new man:-) thank goodness because he was cranky.

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of his symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include GI infections, inflammations, motility disorders etc. Brownish discolouration of the vomitus could indicate the presence of blood in it. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile he could try using some OTC antacids and anti-emetic medications.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
