Hair loss & Acid Reflux

Hi, I am new to this board and have a couple questions regarding stress. I am 17 and just started my senior year at highschool. The anxiety I deal with is usually due to school and the thought of college and doing well in my classes. Also, six months ago I had a sexual encounter that I was worried about because I was scared about diseases, so there has been a mix of worries revolving in my head for about 6 months. My diet has always been poor, I eat a lot of junk food and just recentely I developed Grade 2 Acid reflux. I have NEVER had a problem with reflux before in my life, and all of a sudden now, I feel nauseas after I eat and have the burping sensation in my throat. I also noticed over the past 2-3 months that my hair is a lot thinner. The top of my head feels so much thinner then it used to and I was worried that this was also a result of stress. Is hair loss at all common among stressed-out people, or is this something I should consult the doctor about? Let me know..thanks

Re: Hair loss & Acid Reflux

anxiety often causes reflux or GERD, also hair loss sometimes, however everyones hair moults occasionally, some falls out then regrows later

learning to relax and getting more exercise will help you
