While sitting on my computer I did one of these forced small burps that originate from the throat (I hope am making sense) and noticed smoke looking cloud came out of my mouth.. I went to my wife and she confirmed my weird suspension when I did it for the second time in front of her and though she is a physician she said she isn’t familiar with this symptom. I couldn’t do it a third time. I don’t smoke and it wasn’t steam, it had a faint weird smell. I should mention that I’ve had diarrhea for the last few days and my stomach been making all kinds of crazy sounds...
is anyone familiar with this and should I be concerned??

Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

The oral cavity needs to be examined along with the throat ideally by an ENT consultant doctor. If there is any infection then it should be treated promptly. Foul smell is associated with anaerobic infection of the oral cavity but the history you described isn’t compatible with that.

Wishing you best of health
