Can Hair Loss Be Cause By Fibro?

Over the past few years I’ve lost over half. It’s not breakage it’s actually falling out. TYIA

I've been loosing mine for years. But I do know my Graves disease also helps throw it out.
I've been using MD hair lose support for about 2 months and I do seem to be loosing less. And my hairs dresser commented she can see new route. I'm happy.

I have thick hair but yes I have a lot of hair loss.
And when I wash my hair it seems like gobs come out.
I use a drain catcher in the tub.
It is a crazy amount that I retrieve from it and loose from my head wile shampooing and conditioning and running my fingers through. Also my temples have been very thin since teens.
Early 20s My hair looked rat chewed it was so bad at one time. Now my hair is very nice but loose a lot.
No meds.

My hair is falling out like crazy. It's getting thinner as well. It's really bad and I do blame the Fibromyalgia for it. Iam older and have sisters with beautiful hair that is not falling out. Don't go crazy over it because it seems to make it worse.
Buy a good wig if it gets too bad.

As far as I know, no one has written an article about a connection between hair loss and Fibro. It does seem plausible given the amount of stress the body and mind go through. I lost over a third of my hair in my late 60's. The hair fell out with the root attached, the end of the hair became very wispy and thin. I removed hair from the shower drain that was the size of a horses tail ( I have long hair). I went to a dermatologist who was not informative. I researched and did what I could on my own, but basically nothing got better. Hope it goes better for you.😢
