ETA: I am on Prilosec for GERD and two different antibiotics for the diverticulitis.
Have you tried Immodium for the diarrhea? And the important thing is to keep hydrated and make sure your electrolytes don't get depleted. If it's really bad you can drink Gatorade.

Yeah, GERD sucks. I have GERD and BRD (bile reflux disorder) as a complication from the gallbladder removal. Not fun.

Nexium works for me but AIUI it's like $2 a pill. The insurance company must hate me, I take it twice a day.

Rice? Are you doing BRAT?
