Hi thank you for the reply.
I have medium / long hair and thinke it’s gonna go shorter has taken me years to grow I don’t fancy a big chop, in order with intention to me this seems so bad though. For example, I suppose it’s good that all the new regrowth was identified however I’m still shedding is that normal, despite the fact that I’m driving my mother and partner mad with me as noone 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! That’s right! The trichologist states that my hair loss is in the normal range now.
Id be grateful. Of course, aked out with this. GP who would not refer me to a derm as he said it was telogen efflium and it will pass, he was not willing to rinse my bank account when I suggested id pay private nor was he feeding my obsession as I was not going bald! So, the shedding has continued and lead me to see a trichologist who is lovely, she also confirmed it is TE although said I didn’t need treatment as it wast so bad. Generally, obviously my stress heightend which lead to me not eating or sleeping well and crying daily. Seriously. TE only lasted a few months and can only hope this is it tail end Hi all new to this but wanted to share my ongoing experience. 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 dozens of it and I have never noticed this before nor had an obsession with my hair which was in a healthy state! Now regarding the aforementioned fact. This is 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 etc. The obsession has taken over my life and ruining some relationships. June just gone I’m a worrier with known obsessive natures!
The actual question is. Who knows Lauren, maybe there’s something in the water? LOL Where do you live? It’s a nice change and it looks so healthy. My doctor has taken blood work and says that he doesn’t know why it’s happening so. Since layering my hair it looks thicker and fuller. You would never believe how much hair comes out! Now regarding the aforementioned fact. It’s just below my shoulders and the shortest I’ve ever had. We could cut it all off and start a trend! Besides, nice to hear from you! Who knows? My hair is falling out for about 4 months now.
Hey again, I’m at around the 4 month mark also araghhhhh! My trichologist who sees a great improvement, do you worry about going bald as you seem very calm about it haha! Again like you the doctor has assured me over and over again I will NOT go bald! Just hoping it will eventually stop, I do see it’s a but less regarding the shedding amount though either that or I’ve got used to it, I also get regular cuts and my hair is in good condition.
Hi Lauren I been reading your posts.
) 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. When I have re done my platt at work about 2 each time which seems minute, day for instance so far I’d say about 6 this morning on my brush. Tbh I feel bad as other peoples seem worse but I don’t know if I’m normal shedding or still stress stages related telogen effuvilum. When I straighten there is a significant amount more and same with washing.
Hello thanks for the response, I am no longer stressed!
Whenever eAting and usual sleeping pattern, well back into my work routine. You know what triggered your loss and how long has it been going on for you If you don’t mind me asking, right? Hi mechie, thanks for the response.
