I'm a 23 year old male, recently having severe anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, and fear for no reason. I've been noticing new white hairs on my head daily, and my eyebrows seem to be thinning quickly. I also feel great stress for no reason and breakout in nervous sweats randomly. Any help is much appreciated, curious if there is some connection between the hairloss/color change and the stress, or if its just an anxiety disorder. I should note i've always had a slight anxiety issue, but never this bad, worsened in the past several months.
Have you sought out medical treatment? I would suggest you do that ASAP, especially because of suicidal thoughts. Yes, stress can cause hair loss. It is called stress alopecia. And also color changes in your hair. Good example, look at all the presidents that enter office, they look great, when their term is up, they are almost completely gray. Please make an appt. ASAP, there are lots of meds out there that can address your stress/anxiety issues. Believe me, you will feel much better!! Please let me know how you are doing, and feeling. Been there. Bless
