I'm looking for advice on someone who has the same symptoms as me. I suffer daily now for over 2 years with loose & watery bowel movements (can be yellow at times), burps that taste like rotten eggs, extreme bowel/stomach noises/flatulence + abdominal cramps w/ nausea and occasionally vomiting.
I have had every test imaginable. Blood, stools, every scan, every scope, still need to do a capsule endoscopy at the end of March (if anyone knows a location in Montreal or Ottawa that I can get this done feel free to leave a comment as I am currently needing to travel to Toronto for it due to government regulations against it in the province of Quebec)
I take imodium, lomotil, pepto
-bismol daily. I have tried other medications such as anti - spasmodics (Bentyl), corticosteroids (Entocort), anti depressants (Elavil), and several antibiotics (Rifaxamin, Flaygl, Cipro) and bile acid medication (Questran) . While I am on any antibiotics the rotten egg burps disappear and my stool seems to normalize throughout the treatment. As soon as I stop the antibiotics my symptoms seem to return days later with a vengeance.
Also noticed if I completely avoid sugar in anyway (sugar, honey, maple syrup, bread, rice, fruits) for more then 2 weeks symptoms calm down but as soon as I have the smallest amount of any of the above mentioned foods, sulphuric egg burps start & every symptom closely follows.
Anyone who has gone through the exact same thing and found a answer or is still going through this please leave comments and advice. I am at the end of my rope with all this, has taken control of every aspect of my life and I am out of solutions.
