Can acid reflux or ibs cause hair loss or thinning? Everytime I eat my stomach starts gurgling and I have to burp but I noticed my hair is thinning?!

In brief: Probably not but...

Stress can cause an increase in IBS symptoms and reflux and also a thinning of the hair. Another possible cause would be thyroid problems.
If you've had significant weight change, depression, constipation or other symptoms you should discuss thyroid disease with your doctor.
