Sulphur burps and pains?

Patient

Q: Every so often I will start burping these horrific rotten sulfur burps. Sometimes they begin from when I wake up but often they appear after dinner, in the evening. By bedtime, my stomach hurts so much I can hardly move and my night is spent sleeping for 20 minutes and then waking up to be sick or with diarrhoea for 20 minutes, and then back to sleep again for 20 minutes over and over again until every last thing is out of my body. Recently I've been having sharp shooting pains in my left lower back and above my hips along with the sulphur burps. I know the doctors are going to tell me to keep a food diary before they can diagnose me(if anything is wrong) but this is happening at least once a week and I can't wait much longer without getting help.
