Query by labile_manatee: Hair loss- when’s it heading to quit?!?
I am a 16 yr aged lady. My hair’s been slipping out steadily since last September (eight months). I’m confident it is telogen effluvium, activated by an episode of severe stress previously on last year. It truly is diffuse and hasn’t been coming out in handfuls or everything like that. I thought it may possibly be hypothyroidism simply because I have some of the indicators (experience excessively exhausted, yawning all the time, the outer ring of my eyebrows have fallen out, receiving heavy intervals and pressure headaches often), and also due to the fact my grandmother has it. My mother also has a good deal of the symptoms for hypothyroidism.
I have been to the medical professional two times, experienced my blood analyzed two times (the initial end result showed my thyroid amounts currently being a little below typical, the 2nd result was standard) and I preserve hoping that it will commence slowing down quickly, but it’s not. The doctor would seem to get me severely, but when they’re completed with their blood assessments they will not offer you any followup. This isn’t regular, you never drop your hair at sixteen!
I’ve always had truly thick hair and fortunately even though I’ve misplaced, by now, what appears like loads, to other individuals it does not like like I’ve lost an dreadful good deal (although I observe it). It really is just so bothersome, discovering hairs all over the place, experience frightened of washing it or brushing it, constantly examining my clothing to select off hairs. It still looks all appropriate now, but in an additional number of months I’m not so sure. I’m obtaining it cut routinely and things and I by no means get split ends.
I have noticed new hairs increasing in- but I have only observed since they are falling out. I think the follicles have ‘minituarised’, so now the only hairs I increase are limited, weak and colourless. Also standard lengthy hairs preserve coming out. Every time I consider it is stopping, it just bulldozes on.
I do have critical tests coming up but I don’t feel they’re stressing me out. I in fact like exams (freak, haha).
Has any person else experienced telogen effluvium, or any other sort of hair reduction? Many thanks in progress (:
I just take biotin and night primose oil vitamins. The primose will help if it is hypothyroidism (hormone balance), despite the fact that not enough, and I doubt I have a biotin indeficiency but they ended up b.loody pricey so I am going to complete them!
Oh, and I never have to shell out for doctor’s appointments (the question of the NHS), and I only go to the medical professional for issues I’m genuinely concerned about, so rarely at any time.

My best friend had this problem, Hair loss all the problems with going to the doctor and they not finding anything, she ended up being fine it ended up being traction alopecia caused from her using too many hair products. The problem is there are so many different things that can cause it but you know if it doesn’t stop after adolescence then there’s definitely something wrong. But whatever is causing it is most likely curable but the worst part is not knowing but hang in there. As for liking exams. I don’t think that’s curable. Just weird. lol
