My daughter and I have had some weird symptoms over the last several years and the docs that I have talked to just act like they don't know what it is. I am thinking that is gerd, but not for sure.
It starts with alot of burping, turns into rotten egg burps that are horrible!! they stink and taste sooo bad. Then the stomach gets really bloated, I mean like you shook a bottle of coke. It feels like gas is popping inside the stomach, and it happens rather fast. The stomach then hurts, this can last from 1-2 days, followed by either diarrhea, or vomiting (once most of the time). I haven't had this in a long time, but my daughter gets it off and on. It is horrible! As soon as you get those rotten egg burps, you know your in for it for the next day or two, and by the way, the smell can clean out a room.
Is this gerd? or a virus? My daughter had it the last 3 days, took her to pt first, was better by the time we left. They did some blood work and her wbcs were 19. She is feeling normal tonight and no symptoms what so ever. I told the md about her bouts of these symptoms and she brushed me off.
Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.

Hi Karen,
Welcome to Healing Well!  Sorry to hear that you and your daughter are having so many upper GI problems.  It sounds like you're in the right place.  I'm sure others will be by to weigh in on your symptoms. 
Although they don't sound like classic GERD symptoms, they are all within the experience of many who do suffer from GERD.  Here is a link to some information from the Mayo Clinic about GERD and GERD symptoms.  Hopefully you will find some information that is helpful:
Glad you've joined us!
Feel better!
