Default Omega-3 Allergy?

I was taking fish oil supplements for the omega-3 but my stomach would feel completely sour all day. I started with the GNC brand then moved to some all-natural brand I bought at a local natural foods market. I stopped taking them because of these adverse side effects and decided to try the Naturally Preferred brand eggs with omega-3 in them. I had the same sour stomach. I've heard of people feeling sick from fish oil supplements, but feeling the same way with the eggs has me worried. I want omega-3 in my diet but now I'm not sure how to go about it. Have you all heard of this before and do you have any suggestions for an alternate source of omega-3? Thanks.

Try straight fish "oil" (not "caps") and see if the problem persists. You may have issues with one of the "fillers" that are used in the capsules.

Liquid fish oil is tolerated better by everyone.

Have you ever noticed any issues with whole fish?

I don't eat much fish, but when I do, I don't have these problems. Thanks for the suggestions.
