Can stress & anxiety cause hair loss in areas all over your body? Some areas are small spots other areas are fairly large- does it also slow regrowth?

In brief: Possibly

Alopecia areata or patchy hair loss has anxiety as one of the triggers.
Definitely would consult a dermatologist and look at any other causes-- i.e. Hypothyroidism, other medications, other medical causes.
