Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

It looks like you are having acid reflux disease and probably a hiatal hernia.
An upper GI endoscopy and a barium xray may be done for evaluation.

When you have loose stools, try to eat more yogurt and probiotic supplements for faster relief.

I hope that answers your question.
