See bloating and flatulence is very common health problem these days and you have also mentioned of having loose stools at intervals. You also have urge of defecation multiple times....
the problem you are having can be due to indigestion, irregular gastric emptying, irritable bowel syndromes. I would suggest you the following-

Take small frequent meals
Avoid taking much fatty food
Take enough dietary fibers in your diet
You take try taking antacids. Take pantoprazole-levosulpiride combination in its place. Also some lactobacillus supplements. You can discuss with your doctor about prescription drugs.
Do brisk exercise daily like jogging, cycling etc for better metabolism
You can see a GASTROENTEROLOGIST for specific investigations and further management.
