    Ok so I have had this "bug" hit me at least 17+ times over the last 3 years. One day I will be feeling fine and such and then, I get these burps. There terrible, they smell like sulfur rotten eggs. Its so bad I literally shake when ever it happens. The burps usually last a few hours then the vomiting takes place. And Thats well... you know how vomitting feels. I thought it was food i was eating, now i have stopped eating those foods. I've gone to the doctors and they did tests and they really didnt have an answer for me. Have you ever had this? This is terrible and i cant take it anymore!

    How is your overall health excluding this condition? Age? Over/underweight? Taking any medications?

    When you vomit is it watery or does it contain a lot of undigested food?

    You swim? Chlorinated pools only or elsewhere? Could be contaminated water you ingest while swimming.

    With that said, I do find it a little puzzling why you turn to Mac nerds who are strangers, no less, for medical help instead of finding better doctors who can actually examine you and run tests and such. :confused:

    My doctor already did several tests on me and they just said its just a bug I continue to get. I will definitely check that water thing. I figured I am not the only one with this

    The fact that you said you are a swimmer made me think giardiasis, but your lack of diarrhea ruins my hypothesis. Call me when you get the runs

    What tests did they do? Have you had an endoscope exam? Did they test for H. pylori infestation?
