I have an unsettled stomach...
I have an unsettled stomach and started to burp up a sulfur type smell, also suffering from gas, and this has now escalated to vomiting. Is this a stomach virus or something else?

Any fever, abdominal pain or diarrhea?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Just started about 5hrs ago. No pain, just upset stomach, and no diarrhea. No fever symptoms but I don’t have a thermometer

It sounds like a stomach virus and that usually runs its course in a few days

For now I suggest oral probiotics, PeptoBismol, and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day

If it persists beyond another three days you should have your doctor check it out

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
