Can acid reflux cause weight loss?

Possibly... There is a possibility that gerd (gastroesophogeal reflux disease) could lead to weight loss if the severity of the illness was so severe that you were being malnourished as a result. If you have frequent symptoms of acid reflux despite treatment with over the counter or prescription medication you need to contact a gastroenterologist and have an exam and upper endoscopy.
Yes/If? If the reflux is so severe that you are not eating and taking in enough calories, yes, it can cause weight loss. If this is the case, you should be seen expediently by a GI doctor or surgeon and get an endoscopy of the GI tract to see what is going on. Stricture, tumor and infection could be present and causing this. This sounds extreme and I would not put it off. See doctor now!

Can acid reflux cause tingling /heat feeling in the head? And dizziness? + a little weight loss? If no what could it be?

Re-evaluate. Tingling, heat, and dizziness are all possible symptoms of low blood sugar and low blood pressure. Aldactone (spironolactone) that you are using as an anti-andorgen could be contributing to these symptoms. Eating 6 equal small meals, staying hydrated, movement through the day, and a good night sleep might help.

Your doctor should k. Inform your doctor about your weight loss. He should check your CBC and liver functions including proteins like Albumin level. These may indicate some abnormality if there is something internal going on. The weight should go up once your acid reflux has been treated with antacids.

I've been taking meds for 10 yrs. For acid reflux. Will using a colon cleanse help with weight loss in the belly area?

Not sure associated? Acid reflux medications do not cause weight loss nor weight gain. I assume you are alluding to possibly to pH balance. A colon cleanse (not with enema) may help you reset your balance towards a low basic ph. This will help place you in a fat burning mode. "belly fat" especially visceral fat is difficult to burn.
