In brief: Gastrinoma

Yes, diarrhea is anticipated in a condition called zollinger-ellison syndrome, in which excessive acid production by a gastrinoma tumor promotes diarrhea by a number of mechanisms.
In the average person with acid indigestion without an associated gastrinoma, the answer is however no.
