I'm still not diagnosed and keep reading conflicting stories and am just confusing myself more, so I thought I'd try and piece my hair loss saga together a bit and see what you girls think! I only noticed my scalp peering out beneath my hair around mid-December, never before then. Since then it's gotten pretty dramatically, progressively thinner! I don't seem to have any problems around my temples, but instead at frontal area and basically all up top. I've never noticed any MAJOR shedding (I guess a few in the shower is normal...maybe not a few on my pillow?). I went to my doctor in March or so who did blood tests but everything came back perfectly normal despite the hope that my vegetarian diet was leaving me lacking in something. She said there was a possibility of PCOS, though the only symptom I show of this is hair loss and she said my hormone levels came back ok!? I am overweight, but weirdly this started after I lost 42 pounds (in the space of about a year, nothing too sudden!). Basically she said to keep up whatever I was doing (effing starving!) and start to exercise (finding that hard!) and get back to her if there was no improvement. Since then I've probably lost another 7 pounds or so. I blame taking 2 holidays and eating until I burst to blame on my slow progression! Recently I have noticed that it doesn't seem to be getting any worse, and I think I have some regrowth at the very front (very small amount!). Depending on the day and my mood I can feel positive and optimistic, but other days just hopeless! It didn't help matters that one morning over last weekend I found about 6 short hairs and 1 long hair on my pillow, a sight I hadn't seen for months! I'm hoping against hope that a multitude of worries made my hair loss happen around Christmas time (boyfriend troubles, car troubles, work stress, a lot of dental work and a falling accident that left me looking like the elephant man with 5 stitches) and that it will grow back and my Mother (who's always right) said I could rule out anything genetic...I only hope it's not just wishful thinking on her part for the 1st time but I'd like to know what you girls with experience think! Taking the following supplements (cross posted from A Positive Outlook!): At the moment I'm taking a daily multi-vitamin with iron, cod liver oil capsule, evening primrose oil + starflower oil capsule, 3 Spirulina tablets twice daily and 1 Nourkrin (same thing as Viviscal) tablet twice daily. I also have the Nourkrin shampoo, conditioner and scalp lotion but haven't been too meticulous with those as my hair feels a bit greasy afterwards. Just washing every second day with a baby shampoo. Also haven't used a hair dryer in months...can't quite resist the irons though, but I figure that's going nowhere near the root anyway! Thanks, girls. Sorry about how lengthly this is, thought more info might help!
