    Hi Tori, I probably have Androgenetic Alopecia (not confirmed), age 40. I don't have other scalp issues besides occasional scalp pain. Recently was told I have psoriasis on my leg and arm. That is new for me. HTH.

    Age: 44. Diagnosis: (by self) CTE (various long list of reasons why I believe that)

    onset: age 42 - sudden, frightening massive shedding wherein which I lost ~40% of my hair in a few months (continued loss but at a slower pace, now)

    Psoriasis on the back of my neck (localized) since I was 18. No known autoimmune disease in my past, HOWEVER it is possible I am developing Hashimotos thyroidosis (sp) as I 'clinically present' with consistently out of whack thyroid values in bloodwork. I either am developing Hashis or have some sort of erratic secondary hypothyroid thing going on.

    No other issues (of course, my husband blames stress.)
    I am 39, but hair has been thinning for the last 10 years- much worse in the last 3 years, after having babies (maybe stress...)
    After scalp biopsy, doctor told me it was androgenetic alopecia- hereditary- nothing to do.
    When I tried Rogaine (twice in the last 10 years) my scalp was miserably irritated. I have sensitive skin- eczema and such, so the Rogaine was a no-go.

    five years ago, after my husband had been sick for 8 mos and then passed away I had inflammation, itching, burning, redness at the nape of my neck where my hair loss now is most obvious. It lasted for months and I'm not sure what finally helped clear it up, but I think it was Scalpicin.

    Currently, I am experiencing a rash on the back of my neck that cortisone creme is not controlling. It's a hard area to observe with a mirror (or two), so I'm not sure how visible it is, but I scratch at it every day. I should maybe see a derm again.

    About the same time my hair started falling out, I started having trouble with eczema for the first time ever. It was all over my hands, but not on my scalp. I also had weird inflammation all the time. If I got a scratch, for example, it would swell up far more than usual.

    I have no scalp or skin conditions, nor any autoimmune diseases that i know of. But i experienced that funny spider crawling across the scalp feeling at night every once in a while, years before i realised i was thinning.

    Androgenetic Alopecia and TE, no history of anything similar in my family

    36 with Androgenetic Alopecia (no biopsy or anything, just a doctor looking at my head and normal blood work). I am adopted so I have no way of knowing if it runs in my family. It started over 3 years ago, right when my fiance left me to marry a nurse and my parents kicked me out of the house I was renting from them because they found someone that would pay a higher rent. And I lost my dog (sounds like a country song). So maybe stress triggered Androgenetic Alopecia? No idea.

    Anyway I don't think I have any other scalp issues except it gets SO ITCHY. I don't have dandfuff or inflamtion so the itchiness baffles me. :dunno:

    I have scalp pain, like someone pulled my hair. Also, at the same time my hair loss began, I started with seasonal allergies and migraines.
