Burping sulphur?
It's the oddest thing - I have a bit of the 'ol churning stomach. A few hours ago, I let go of a burp, and my friend asked me if I had just eaten a box of matches. It's rather sulphur-y, and has been since that fateful burp. Should I be concerned? Should I go get a candle?

1. You should go to a doctor... no medical advice here

2. classic sign of
giardia. I live in Nepal where intestinal problems are considered dinner table conversation. Giardia is not common in America but does happen, particularly if you've drunk from a stream. Sometimes it can be dormant for quite a long time before bothering you. Many labs in the US have a difficult time identifying it in a "sample."

Good Luck!

4. Man, one of my dogs had that when he was a puppy
Ugly, ugly, ugly experience. I will spare you the description of his crate but suffice to say I would have thought you would know it if you had it!

By the way, the vet ID'd it in about 10 seconds - if the lab lets you down you might want to try a vet!

6. Interesting...
I've not been near a stream... though I was pegging it as something gastrointestinal :)

8. Nope....
had a very unsettling Mexican dinner yesterday. Didn't sit well then... wondering if maybe this was the residue from that. Enjoyed the meal while I was eating it though :)

10. I had a similar experience a few years ago
It was followed by a nasty stomach flu which lasted about 48 hours. Diarrhea, gas, nausea...you know the drill.

Drink plenty of water.
