Can acid reflux lead to diarrhea and weight loss?
Reflux itself is not considered to cause diarrhea, but it can cause weight loss if you eat less due to pain. Some people actually gain weight as having food in their bellies makes it feel better.
If you are having repeated episodes of diarrhea along with weight loss and reflux you should be heading to a doctor to get it checked out. You could have irritable bowel or a parasite or any host of other things. Only a doctor will be able to thoroughly diagnose what's going on.

Thank you, I have not been diagnosed with AcidReflux. However, I have the exact symptoms of AcidReflux along with some other symptoms. I don't know what's going on with me and my doctors keep giving me medication without running any test to pinpoint the exact cause. I guess I have to get more insistent with them so they can take me more seriously and run some test.
