Hair Loss with IBS
Anyone else experience hair loss with an IBS flare up?  I have it every single time.  I have lower right quadrant pain.  A few years ago had every test under the sun and nothing was found.  I just dont know how to treat the IBS.  I am afraid that if this happens too many more times, I will end up bald.  Trendy for a guy these days but not for women!  Any one else have this problem?  Any suggestions?

I've never heard of women losing their hair because of IBS.  I know the pain you're talking about, too.

Have you had your thryoid levels tested?  Thyroid issues can cause hair loss.

Hi, I too have experienced hair loss everytime i have a flare up with ibs!!! I am always constipated and i think w the high amount of toxins left in my body for long periods of time is what might be a link to the hair loss...I don't know...I will just continue my research and hopefully find some ans soon to by problem. My hair literally comes out in my hands when i run my fingers through it. Im not feelin pretty these days. Its thinning out like crazy and i have had so many test and no ans to why whats happening w me is happening.
