I have had the sympts since friday evening after eating out and having a salad.

Stomach pain only when I go to the restroom w/diarreah.

I take 40 mgs of Aciphex in the am and 40 mgs of Famotidine in the pm. I have not had the aciphex in a few days. The rx could not filled until today. Ins would not pay.

You probably have a Gastroenteritis, probably Viral, in addition to the acid reflux.

This is causing you to have this bad breath and diarrhea.

You need to drink lots of fluids to prevent dehydration.

Drinking rehydration fluids like Gatorade would help with maintaining your electrolyte balance.

You can take OTC Imodium for the diarrhea.

This should pass off within a few days, if it persists, you might need to have a Stool test to look for a Bacterial / Amoebic infection that would need an antibiotic therapy.
