Stomach problem, burping, farting. What precautions should be taken?

I am having stomach problems and have had an endoscopy but haven t received the results yet. I have had diahreah every time I go to the bathroom, and the last couple days it was beginning to turn more into regular stools so I thought I was improving. Yesterday i had to run to the bathroom about every half hour with diareah again, and my butt is so sore and raw from going so much. Last night for dinner I had beef roast, baked potato with sour cream, and vegetables (including Brussels sprouts). A couple hours later I started burping and farting a lot. The burps would be three or four big ones in a row, and the farting was every time I moved. It continued throughout the night, with me getting up about six times to go to the bathroom. This morning it s better, but still burping and farting more than I should be. Do you think it was just the Brussels sprouts that caused this? I can t go to work today, because it s embarrassing. Thank you.

The complaints are due to the food you have taken.It can be anything ,but can't point to Brussels sprouts only.
You have got Infection of Intestines.
You have to take Antibiotics like Rifaximine and Metronidazole.
You should add Pre and Probiotic capsule and also smooth muscle relaxant like Dicyclomine.
Nothing to worry.
It gets subsided in few days
Wish you speedy recovery
