Hi! This is my first time here. I started losing my hair last year about this time, it started about the same time my periods stopped. I had 3 patches on my head. My periods started back up and the hair grew back. 3 mos. ago they stopped and I lost all my hair in 3 weeks. Went to the doctors, they did all kinds of blood work. Everything came back normal. They told me it was stress. I was being treated with corticosteroids and steroids but I quit nothing was happening except the side effects. When I was losing my hair I had my husband shave my head. I could handle that better than having handfuls every time I washed it.We cried together and basically moved on. I bought a wig. Next week my Dermatologist made an appointment for me at the medical center at U of M. I don't really want to go but I may just go to hear what they have to say. I don't want to be studied. I have told the people I work with and all have been really supportive.
