Loose stools, bloating. Taking rabeprazole. Will aloe vera capsules help?

First thing in the morning I have urgency to use my bowels and they are usually loose. I am working through what is causing it by trial and error. Rabeprozole Sandoz helps but I dont want to use it continually. I have been suggested aloe veta capsules may also help. I would like to know what may help my lethagic and tiredness in the morning.
I feel I am eating plenty and because I am often bloated feel fat. My doctor has checked my health for other problems that may cause this problem and I am perfectly healthy (including a colonoscopy) Thankyou Linda

Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described symptoms, there could be possibility of acute viral gastroenteritis.
Presence of loose diarrhea suggests the diagnosis.
As per my opinion, Aloe vera won't help in such cases.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ general surgeon and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for complete blood count, ultrasound imaging, and serum electrolytes.
You should take complete antibiotic therapy, antispasmodics, probiotics, antipyretics, if needed.
You should maintain your hydration by taking potassium rich liquids.
Frequent loose diarrhea may cause loss of potassium with weakness and fatigue feeling.
Avoid milk and all milk related products.
Take care,
