Hi, Gm c!! Before I even started my current meds my hair not only became thinner with hair loss but also changed texture from straight, fine blonde to kinky and coarse.
My doctors can't explain it except to question that my crappy health from neglect and poor diet might be affecting it. I was diagnosed as hypothyroid in the beginning but the condition hasn't improved on thyroid supplementation. Or the other explanation ~ old age although I'm not very old. :-(
Are you having problems too?
Hi Girls :)
My hair went from straight to curly on the ends. Then with my depression/anxiety plus the numerous med changes I started to loose my hair. It was scary to see it all over the bathroom floor. My hair is thinner now but has stopped coming out by the brush full. It could be that we loose hair because of the meds we are on. I am on only one med now and before I was on a cocktail of meds. I think that WCV is right about nutrition playing a role in our health also. I also take Omega 6 fish oil capsules, a multi-vitamin and a probiotic. For women it can also be a hormonal issue as we age. I can only hope I do not loose anymore hair.
PS Wannabe I am sorry that loosing your hair is making you more depressed :(
Wow! All my support group Buddies are here! Thanks for the responses from WildcatVet, Janiebme, and Wanna. Y'all have been so supportive and encouraging. I don't get either of those things from any family members.
