Customer Question
I have had several bouts...
I have had several bouts of foul smelling...
I have had several bouts of foul smelling (eggy) and tasting burps. My stomach swells, and like my food hasn't digested. I have had it probably a dozen times. But this time was seen by my GP they put me on 20mg of Omeprazole which cleared it up, then it came back so they increased the Omeprazole to20mg twice a day. That cleared it up, but the last three nights the Omeprazole hasn't been lasting all day and the eggy burps come back in the evening, no matter if I eat, what I eat if I don't eat etc. It is just like my stomach stops working.Medication I am on
Amisulpride 400mg at night (15 years)
Fluoxetine (40mg about a year)
Chlorpromazine (50mg three times a day for about two years)
Furosemide (40mg about 6 months)

Hi there ...

Thank you for your question ...

In this case you should rule out the possibility of esophageal diverticula , which could be the possible reason of all issue.

Get Barium Swallow test to rule out .

So that appropriate treatment may be offered to you .

Good luck .

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
