Dh has been up all night being sick and having lots of wind which he describes as "eggy burps". He saidit is easing now, but cant find anything that it could be.

Anyone experienced this???

i sometimes get this - it's horrible, sometimes eggy, sometimes 'mushroomy' but I find it helps if you eat a bio-yoghurt, or one of those actimel drinks. I think it's probably something to do with the bacteria in your gut - the freindly ones.

Eggy burps can be a sign of giardia (along with horrendous sulphurous farts!). Usually accompanied by diarhoea and cramps. Often picked up overseas, but can be caught in this country. If he has any of those other symptoms I'd suggest he went to the GP for a check as he may need antibiotics if it is.

i get this, and i have irritable bowel syndrome.....if i'm having an 'attack' i.e. i've eaten something i can't properly digest, i burp eggs and fart very toxic gases! sorry if TMI, but i been getting this since i was 8......i'm now 31 and avoid wheat.....
