Anyone Else Losing Their Hair?

Anyone Else Losing Their Hair?

Ever since my diagnosis my hair is falling out waaaay faster than normal. I'm trying to figure out if it's the Fibro of a medication I'm on. I've read this is a pretty common Fibro thing but is there a way to tell...like how it's falling out...not in huge clumps or anything just a lot faster than normal. It really sucks. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

I had trouble with this at one time, but then I made some changes and I reversed it. Everyone is different, and I can tell by looking at your photo that you are on the young side (and the photo is a very good one, for you are very attractive in it).
I stopped coloring my hair and using any other chemicals in it. I also used to get permanents to make my hair more wavy. That had to stop. I was getting a huge bald spot and my hair was falling out and clogging up the drains. I also stopped using anything tight to put my hair up with, even covered elastic bands, and used barrettes instead or clips. I make sure to add a multivitamin to the rest of my supplements so I get the B vitamins which are essential for skin and hair. Cutting down on chemicals in general will help and improving your diet to include foods high in B vitamins, and/or supplementing in them will help, too.
Good luck. I hope these suggestions make sense to you and are helpful.

I've been losing a lot of hair , not clumps just a lot of it. I have'nt ask the dr. about it. I just thought it was my age. Now I've noticed lots of older women with thick hair. I guess I wii discuss with my dr.

My hair is thin & fell out when Id wash it or comb it. Now I noticed there are patches & it goes back farther on side than it did before. Luckly I have a lot if hair so I can make it look good but its a lot of work.
