I have been having heartburn for about 2 years and

I have been having heartburn for about 2 years and would relieve it with Prilosec which worked but I was using it sporadically. My m.d. is telling me to take it every day as directed which I have. I’ve had diarrhea one time that was mostly water. I feel fine but I do have what I call urgency several times a week in the a.m. and the stools are mushy and not fully formed. On the Prilosec box it says to discontinue if you have diarrhea. Is urgency a problem if you feel well and in leaving the bathroom feel good.

I am 64 years old and have had problems with heartburn for years. I do have a small hiatal hernia also. I take 20 mg. of omerprozole daily but sometimes this doesn t take care of the heartburn. Lately I feel like there is always an air bubble in my throat; then, I burp and it is still there. It is very annoying. I am 5 2 tall and weigh 165 pounds.
