my boyfriend is currently experiencing the eggy burps. his is accompanied by excruciating abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and ultimately dehydration which ends in a hospital trip for some IV fluids and pain meds. he is a very emotional person with a low tolerance for stress. i found this website http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/Sulphuric--Eggy-burps-and-stomach-cramps/show/228439 and read the posts by Jody. Some of the respondants think she is psycho, but I think she might be on to something with her pyloric valve theory. Everything else I'm up in the air about but that sounds pretty on target.

Everything else I'm up in the air about but that sounds pretty on target.There are many many different possible causes of this. I'd suggest your boyfriend go see a gastroenterologist.Did your boyfriend happen to have a very large (or series of large frequent) meals that may or may not have been fatty in nature recently, especially before bed?Rapid Gastric Emptying, or Delayed Gastric Emptying can be the cause. I'm not sure if viral problems do cause it.I hope things clear up for him soon, I get this all the time, and it is something I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. It usually only seems to last a few hours (About 6 hours in my case). The cause is very likely a digestive motility disorder.I'm not going to make any suggestions other than to go see a gastroenterologist and hopefully they can shed some light on it, I am currently figuring this one out myself too with my gastroenterologist at the moment.

  • Look into gallbladder problems; HIDA scan is the test to diagnose.Hi Lorig77,Had gallbladder out already due to presence of stones (cholelithiasis,) but no gallbladder disease present (cholecystitis). Sulphur burps, vomiting and watery diarrhea is more present now than before, having episodes almost every 2-3 days instead of every few months/years.
