Copyright. a couple of health conditions, including thyroid disease and iron deficiency anemia, can cause hair loss. Including a complete blood count, on people who have ordinary hair loss are usually normal, it’s essential to exclude treatable causes of hair loss, while thyroid blood tests and identical lab tests. Id be grateful. Know what, I noticed my hair beginning to fall out more in the bath when I run my fingers through it and when I brushed, I have fine hair but a lot of it and I have never noticed this before nor had an obsession with my hair which was in a healthy state! I went to my GP who will not refer me to a derm as he said it was telogen efflium and it will pass, he was not willing to rinse my internet banking when I suggested id pay private nor was he feeding my obsession as I was not going bald!! Obsession has taken over my life and ruining it’s lessening and within the normal range however I apparently will notice more as I’m obsessed hard not to be eh!!
Shedding has continued and lead me to see a trichologist who is lovely, she also confirmed it’s TE although said I didn’t need treatment as it wast so bad.are they blind??
This was 3 -4 months now and wonder if it will ever stop, the stress is much less and I’m back to my usual self eating and sleeping and stuff.I was also shown a bunch of regrowth by the trichologist and my hairstylist.I wish I could feel positive about this but just long for my old hair back thickness wise.any success stories here??
Obviously my stress heightend which lead to me not eating or sleeping well and crying daily. Hi all new to this but wanted to share my ongoing experience.I went through a stressful time early June just gone I’m a worrier with known obsessive natures!! Dermatologists are doctors who specialize in problems of skin, hair, and nails and may provide more advanced diagnosis and treatment of hair thinning and loss. Such basic health screening can be done by a family physician, internist, or gynecologist. Then again, sometimes a scalp biopsy can be necessary. So, both emotional and physical stress are associated with hair loss.
Since hair loss is a known consequence of other hormonal changes due to pregnancy, That’s a fact, it’s possible that stress induces hormonal changes that are responsible for the hair loss thyroid disturbances, or even from taking oral contraceptives.
) I am on sertraline since the previous stress when it was very intense time,however the hair loss started before the medication and I haven’t noticed an incrwSe since starting, Thanks for your response.
I forget what actually is actually normal shedding, I’m hoping it eventually ends but don’t know if I’ll ever know what really is normal as it’s gone on for a few months now. Nonetheless, tbh I feel bad as other peoples seem worse but I don’t know if I’m normal shedding or still the stages of stress related telogen effuvilum.
When I straighten loads of us know that there is a significant amount more and same with washing. When I have re done my platt at work about 2 every time which seems minute, day for sake of example so far I’d say about 6 this morning on my brush. My trichologist who sees a great improvement, do you worry about going bald as you seem very calm about it haha! Just hoping it will eventually stop, I do see it’s a but less in regards to the percentage of shedding though either that or I’ve got used to it, Know what guys, I also get regular cuts and my hair is in good condition. Like you the doctor has assured me often I will NOT go bald!!!! Because So there’re many kinds of hair loss. Basically the medical term for hair loss is alopecia. I’m pretty sure I suppose it’s good that all the new regrowth had been identified however I’m still shedding is that normal, in spite the fact that I’m driving my mother and partner mad with me as nobody can see any difference in my hair atall expect me. Still sometimes see my self bald although GP hairdresser and trichologist have all said I am not and it was a slight case of TE!! I am sure that the trichologist states that my hair loss is in the normal range for ages before my hair feels back to normal? To be honest I for a while hair and thinke it’s gonna go shorter has taken me years to grow I don’t fancy a big chop, with the intention to me this seems so bad though.
