About 2 months ago...

About 2 months ago I went out for breakfast. Shortly after drinking some coffee I started belching with a peppermint stat. I am still belching peppermint. I haven't eaten any peppermint in years. It is getting stronger. What would cause this.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I only spoke with his nurse today and her suggestion was make an appointment. I take numerous meds but none have changed in a long time. Do I need to list them?

I take Levothyroxine, omeprazole, allopurinol, gabapentin, lisinopril,tramadol, metformin,glipizide, ropinirole, furosomide,citirizine, carbidopa/levo, metoprolol trartrate, (over counter) meclazine, lutein, I-Cap, fish oil, vit E, aspirin, B-12, Areds2, potassium, garlique, niacin, magnesium, imodium AD. I am allergic to erithermyicine, sulphur drug, celebrex, loratab, codiene & all reletives, atarax, noratrypotolene, tape, feoretic acid, isosorbide dinitrate, rosuvastatin

Are you feeling any indigestion type symptoms as well? Such as continued belching or fullness in the stomach?

No continued belching. It is just periodically during waking hours. I have been eating a lot less because I feel full faster. If I try to eat more when I feel full I get nasuated and sometimes I throw up.

What you're describing sounds like a lower intestinal blockage which is contributing to gases building up in the small intestines. This in turn can either taste or smell in a sulfur like manner or peppermint or some describe it as an oregano type/soapy taste/smell. It's not anything dangerous but it is important to do something about it before you get actual intestinal blockage. Usually I recommend cutting back on any medications that slow down the intestine such as tramadol and increasing your fiber and fluid intake.

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.
