im 25 yrs old i have no other symptoms. i do have stomach pains sometimes but i got an ultrasound done and i have gull stone in my gull bladder. would that have anything to do with the rotten egg burps? i been burping like this for the past couple months and it lasts for about 3 days or so.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes the gallstones could be a causative factor.

Also anaerobic infection of the gut could cause these burps.

Why don't you try a course of antibiotics and see if it takes care of your burps.

Try out antacids as sometimes duodenal ulcer could be a cause of these burps.

Also I would suggest probiotics such as Activia.
