I saw a new GI in March. Well, I actually spoke with the nurse practitioner and the doctor came in for a couple of minutes and diagnosed my problem as esophageal spasms rather than GERD. So off with the acid reflux meds and onto Amitriptyline to stop the spasms. I've been on the meds for about 7 weeks and once again, disappointment as I smell the fart odor here and there. Even after 15 years, I look around to see if it's someone else, car fumes and one of my cats farting, but nope, rotten egg odor is coming from me.
I volunteer and yesterday I was helping out a woman and her father. Talked with them for a couple of hours and everything was going along normally. Then all of sudden as I was talking, they both looked down and the father stepped away from me. I didn't smell the odor this time, but I knew, yep, another intermittent escape of noxious odor.
Have been checked if you have hiatus hernia?
