Post metallic / sulfur tasting gas comming from mouth

For over a year now I have been having this sulfur, metallic gas comming from my mouth in 4 hr increments. I can almost set my clock to it. It's so bad, I can actually smell it and it burns my eyes. Sometimes it smells just like crap or rotten blood. it gets worst when bending over and with activities. I awaken in the middle of the night with the gases escaping. Like clockwork..!!!!

I do have alot of bloating, IBS that smells like dead fish and continous tendernous in my belly for years. I often loose control of my bowels and my BM are always different. 1 minute, constipated, soft and then runny within a short time period. I also never completely finish when I go to the bathroom. Enema is the only way when it's not the runs. Gross, I know..I am on previcid that seems to take care of it for a few hours. Doc said scope is next. Any ideas what this is?

I've been told by my GI doc that a condition known as being "ketotic" can cause that kind of breath. It basically means you're lacking something nutritionally, and it can be discovered through blood work. Your symptoms go beyond that though, so keep checking with your doctor.
