Your problems appears to be irritable bowel syndrome and/or collitis + Gastritis

You need to avoid junk food, fermented, fried and spicy food

Avoid alcohol, perform yoga or meditate to reduce stress

Reassure yourself

Continue Rabeprazole domperidone for minimum of three weeks twice a day and then shift to once a day for another three weeks

Take a good probiotic for three to four weeks and everything should be alright

If this does not work go for a stool examination and accordingly take an antibiotic

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concern
