Customer Question

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)

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 .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
