I'd not take much comfrot to that "diagnosis." It merely describes your symptoms - not their cause and the recommended treatment is directed at symptom not cause.

Just a thought, but in 1999, around 30% of corn was genetically modified. I've heard others talk about this and it stopped when they stopped eating GMO corn. Further points of interest are the GMO corn fed pigs who have exploded barns when their foamy, over-methane smelling feces turned into a bomb. GMO corn allegedly seems to be really playing havoc on mammals' guts. Something to consider...

I don't suppose anyone has found an answer for this yet? I have EXACTLY what you describe in your post. Happened to me about 4 or 5 times, between the ages of 12 and 14 (19 now) then seemed to just go away. Thought it had just gone away on its own, but it seems the problem has come back with a vengeance.

This is the 3rd time i've had it this year now, and it's starting to drive me into depression. No-one seems to know what the problem is, and my doctor pretty much dismissed it as food poisoning. I am fairly certain this is not the case, as everyone else in my family is fine.

I have a big phobia of being sick; hate it more than anything in the world. i try and hold off the vomiting for as long as possible, but i end up being sick every time without fail.

I'm assuming everyone here is still in the dark about it, but if by chance any of you have found out why this is happening, please please please please reply

I am really curious how they could avoid eating GMO, if all most of the soybean grown nowadays is GMO.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

I too am a sufferer of this strange stomach problem. I found what works is if you head to your local health food store and ask for some bentonite clay powder. They may have it in liquid form and I would suggest that you get that. Take the proper dosage per day. It will help it clear up quickly. Trust me I use it and it works. I used to get this problem all the time and I did the clay only one time and I really have not had a problem with it since. It is something you ingest, It will not hurt you and it will soak up anything that is causing problems like a sponge. It is rather inexpensive. I used to go to the doctor all the time about this and after much research this was the only thing that has helped. I hope you find some comfort!!

Well, I am another that is suffering these symptoms of severe watery diarrhea, cramping, nausea, and the strange tasting burps. Don't remember having this problem til this past year. Have now gone through about 8 to 10 bouts in the last 7 months. Not fun. I finally called my doctor yesterday and she order several stool sample tests. Of course, by the time my husband picked up the vials, the diarrhea (and burping) had subsided. Now just have to wait til the inevitable next bout, as long as the liquid in 3 of the vials is still viable. Will post the results later. Wanted to post some info from another site I found while searching for answers this morning. One person with the same symptoms took Alka-seltzer and it relieved his sulfur/popcorn tasting burping immediately. I have not tried it yet, as I am better this morning, but others on the site tried it, all with relief. Not a panacea but it works for the burping anyway.

I have been having the same symptoms. I have not seen a doctor, yet. I was afraid I would be told it's food poisoning and dismissed. I figured they'd just tell me to let it run its course. I've had it twice, now. The first time was a couple weeks ago. My vomit and diarrhea were very dark brown with a seemingly sticky consistency. I only vomitted twice (in one sitting) with the first time. This second time from which I am currently recovering I was dry heaving for about 5 minutes, but never had any actual emesis. I definitely had the corn-tasting burps. Those are the WORST! I have felt like my insides were bubbling, someone had described it as boiling water, but no heat or anything. Some chills, a fever.

This has been happening to me too, like others I get a burnt popcorn burp taste, and I know I'll have diahreha or puking problems. Like right now. I'm only 13 but I don't seem to have any other problems but its really painful. :-)

Just in case anyone is still needing answers, i read this man's experience of periodic gastroparesis and it sounds exactly like what the original poster described. He has included what helped him as well https://nfb.org/Images/nfb/Publications/vod/vod_23_3/vodsum0805.htm. I'm not a medic but it might be worth seeing if the diet works for you, or check out the professionals that helped him. All the best.

If you have trouble opening that, search for My Life With Gastroparesis, just make sure its the right article (it's the personal story of a guy who had diabetis since childhood: diabetics can suffer from gastrparesis)

P.s. I only joined to share the information, I have my own 'struggles' so might not be back. I really wish everyone all the best
