The Burp

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, I'm really hoping someone can help me with this because it's really starting to get me down now! sad

I have had a history of stomach problems and was diagnosed with IBS a few years ago. However, recently, I have started having what I call 'The Burp'. Me and my partner have recently been eating more healthy, lots of chicken, fruit and vegetables, however, when I have a day off and have a takeaway or a pub meal, generally much more fatty food, I find I am suffering. I usually wake up around 4-6am the next day and it starts with the eggy tasting burps. As soon as I get this I know there's trouble. I then get severe stomach cramps, a gurgling stomach, an upset stomach and sometimes gas for around 6 hours. I literally spend the entire time in the bathroom rolling around in pain, doing eggy burps and having to go to the toilet multiple times until it eventually passes. Then I'm fine. I'm finding I'm having this more and more often now. I've seen lots of similar stuff online but nobody seems to have found a definite answer. Can anyone help me PLEASE?
