New Here and losing everything. Hi, I have been reading and I am losing hair. I have been undertreated for thyroid the past two years. I was lucky to have thick wavy hair. It's hereditary. I never thought this could happen. Long Short, 2yrs ago I noticed some thinning. Everyone thought I was a drama queen. I am not. I was losing my best friend to cancer as well as my neighbor of 16 years. My GP said stress and took blood tests for thyroid. My tsh was a little low. No treatment. I still had plenty of hair and no idea what thyroid was with 2 people close to me dying of cancer. No diva. Sadly, after both passed by September 2013, I started to struggle, grief, weight loss. I chalked it up to stress. But something hit me February 2014 and I thought I was losing my mind. Now physically weak and more hair disappeared. I had thick coarse hair and lost a lot. I wish I could upload a photo Anyway, at the doctor March 2014 and my thyroid tsh dropped in the year. All scans and testing, have nodules, saw the specialist and he said wait and see 6-8 months. Last year this time I saw significant hair loss and shedding. I used to lose hair after washing, but now I was zooming in and along with the thyroid disease untreated, I lost 80% and going of my hair as I write this. The doctor looks at me and says alopecia. Right! . I saw another specialist who wanted to yank it out. Said hair loss will continue until I get levels right and probably won't see much hair growth. I have been documenting with pictures and these people areâ€¦ useless. I have lost sides, behind the ears, nape , top and all over thinning. It really started daily the last 3 months. I cry, I am angry with doctors and don't want to go back. This consumed my life. Work is so many days off now. I don't want to be seen or leave my house. I know this is depression and stress, I can't believe I listened to the specialist over a year ago. Doctors dismiss hair loss. I appreciate your support. I apologize for rambling, but I gave up. I am constantly picking up clumps of hair and cry or shut down. Maybe reading posts here and being with people who understand will snap me out of this. Thanks again and I feel for everyone going through this : I never imagined it would take the life out of me.
