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.
