Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you are having these symptoms
you are 82 years old
sudden diarrhea can be from food intolerance to gluten which is wheat protein, or milk lactose in dairy or possibly to spoiled food
you may need to avoid gluten for 1-2 weeks and see if your symptoms get better
and avoid milk and diary for 1-2 weeks and see if your diarrhea stops.
burping can be from excessive stomach acid in your stomach or from H Pylori bacterial infection in your stomach
stomach acid reducers like nexium, prilosec, protonix could help decrease stomach acid. there are blood tests and upper endoscopy scope procedures which can check for H Pylori infection in your stomach.
let me know if you have questions.
you are welcome
