In brief: Different issues

The caffeine in coffee will help alertness but can make your heart beat faster. Caffeine can stimulate gastric acid secretion and cause upset stomach if you're susceptible.
Any hot liquid stimulates peristalsis which can cause diarrhea. Intestinal gas is normal and part of being human. Social convention directs us to move away from people when nature calls.
