Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

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.
