4255670 tn?1355936577 I am a 38 year old married female with 4 children in good general health with severe hair loss. =( The hair loss started in May of 2010, subsiding for awhile at the end of 2011 and picking back up drastically early in 2012. My last daily hair count was 743 hairs lost. These are hairs that are of varying lengths ranging from about 9-12 inches to 1/4" inch...so MANY are new growth hairs. The hair comes from all over my head so there isn't any one spot or patch of loss.
Avatar n tn I tried Lamictal but it made me literally stupid and gave me horrible acne, then I tried Depakote but it made me like the living dead I was miserable and tired and I gained 20lbs and started losing my hair (i didnt appreciate that), currently I'm on trileptal which is great because my hair came back and my depakote weight went away but i dont think it is getting rid of my seizures so its basically useless, so now I am slowly adding topamax to my regime!
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar f tn Just a few observations- I see a pattern of Pantene users getting this condition, plus hormone changing events associated as well. I know female hormones can cause hair loss, and increased inflammation in in tissue including gums and scalp. So, maybe these changes cause some bacterial increase or inflammation in the scalp that Listerine clears up. Clarifying shampoo removes oils and buildup, so probably clears these to allow Listerine to soak in do its thing.
Avatar n tn Also, since changing certain 'less than healthy' habits, I am no longer experiencing hair loss, and I no longer have that 'beer belly'. My slurred speach that I once had, has largely disappeared, as well as feelings of fatigue and the accompanying 'lazy gait' (stumbling/dragging feet/unsteady balance).
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 26 year-old female and have been experiencing hair loss at the frontal area over the last few months. I have had quite a lot of stress recently since the grad school started but I am not sure if that is the reason. I was told about Rogaine. I was wondering if you think it would help? If yes, how long do you think i should use it? Does it have any side effects that you have heard of? Is there anything else that you suggest I could do?
Avatar n tn *Find a free STD clinic in your zip code and get both you and your partner tested. Call the health department and they can give you information. *Consider the fact that you may be allergic to latex condoms. Swith to animal skin or non-latex condoms. Keep in mind that animal skin condoms are more porous than latex and can transmit certain stds. In conclusion, sex is not a bad thing, it's enjoyable, makes us feel good and the close contact makes us feel 'human'.
599170 tn?1300977493 I hate the way I feel every day, tired, bloated/constipated, the acne, hair loss, weight gain, then you have the mood swings and anxiety. I hate the fact that my body has about nothing feminine left to it. I am on bio progesterone and 2 grains of armour although I am feeling a bit better, I feel as though I have hit a pot hole and gotten a flat and am stranded and the doctors don't care they don't understand how horrible I feel day in and day out. They blame it on depression.
Avatar n tn Regarding the hair loss, when I started going through menopause at age 47 I would find a hair ball in the shower. Lasted for a while and then stopped. I've read that hair loss can be attributed to a lack of estrogen. So not sure if you're at that age or not. Hair loss is also a symptom that some people with lupus deal with. I've had some estrogen issues just recently and have noticed my skin is a lot drier than usual, probably a result of the lowering estrogen.
Avatar n tn Ive been on microgestin since mid sept and nothing has happened. so im at a loss of what to do next. The rest of my hair is silkier than normal too. i dont know whats going on.
Avatar n tn I am so happ to find this group!! I recently found out about Geritol from my hair stylist and I had now idea what she was taking about. My husband and I have been ttc for about 3 months now with no baby as of yet. She specifically advised me to use the Tonic version so I bought it late last night and will begin taking it today. We're keeping our knees bent and fingers crossed!!
Avatar n tn she was on her second week on it and had lost 16lbs so far so i was curious and down to try one more go at weight loss........i have tried everything under the sun with no valid results......:-( last monday i went to weight doctor for weight control......they took my blood, did a ekg, urine sample and i met with doc and she told me all my do's and dont's and i was given the shot in my hip along with 4 pills to take daily....oh yeah i was told i was anemic too and needed to purchase iron pills...

Avatar m tn And this is not including my diet which was pretty damn good. Vitamin A toxicity involves hair loss and hair/skin issues. I have stopped this pills as of yesterday, I also have an appointment with a dermatologist tomorrow and will update this if I learn anything new. I really don't think there's a need for these pills unless a doctor confirms you are lacking in some fashion.
Avatar m tn Researchers looked at 11 studies on the relationship between iron intake and hair loss, and concluded that treating iron deficiency may help regrow hair. Feed your mane iron-packed foods such as lean red meat, turkey, egg yolks, dried beans, dried fruit, whole grains. Eyes The National Institute of Health found that people who consume the most lutein—a carotenoid found in plant foods—are 43 percent less likely to develop macular degeneration.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn I still feel fat and ugly and I swear today I had the worst hair day in my life. Prayers back at ya!!!!! Hopefulx, No wonder why your freaking out. You want to know on Friday and if it's negative you should try again on Wednesday? (if you don't get a period) Tons of extra stress, I couldn't do it. Thank god we do blood tests over here. Your doctor never does a blood test? Not even when a urine test comes up positive?

Avatar f tn I found the thing that helps for a couple to few weeks is dying my hair and/or getting a scalp treatment at the hair salon. Let me know if you find a remedy that works on a daily basis!
Avatar m tn All I know is that it really affects how fast my hair and nails grow, and because I'm lazy and cavalier about taking my vitamins (with the exception of D and B-12) I know what happens to ME if I slack off. I was taking it on the advice of a doctor for pain following car accidents, long before my thyroid started malfunctioning. Before I could get any doctor to believe my thyroid was wonky, my nails in particular were splitting down into the quick and peeling in layers.
Avatar f tn If a woman is over weight that is fine, obese then some weight loss measures should be taken for the health of that woman. Personally I like a woman who is not the slim model type. I like a woman who has some extra weight. Dress how you want in public but when in the bedroom, thigh highs, thongs all that stuff....yes wear it. But don't dress sexy just to attract someone. A lot of women will dress real "sexy/trashy" and what is the first thing that comes to a guys mind...
Avatar f tn * Restless leg problems a minimum of 20 days a month. Sometimes severe and causes loss of sleep. 1997 (age 43) * More pronounced problems with heat during summer months. Feelings of weakness during exposure to heat and for hours afterwards * Severe pain in my right hip, to the extent that sometimes it would give out on me. This happened on a daily basis for months, sleep sometimes disturbed due to pain.
Avatar m tn It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING! DISCLAIMER! The technique in this manual involves bending over in a hot shower. Obviously, if you bend over in a shower, there is a slight possibility that you can get dizzy and fall down. You could possibly hit your head, get knocked out, or break something.

Avatar n tn (This is certainly an important issue for women, but I'm less sure about the role calcium plays in men's health. Ask your doctor?) Here's a little horror story to help you feel better (!)...way back in the tx dark ages ('91) they turned me loose with what turned out to be no thyroid function and no one caught it for about 6 months. Can you imagine? When someone did bother to test my thyroid the TSH was in the several hundreds.
Avatar n tn He posted everywhere. Several threads, both Men's and Women's forums. Just a troll, never to be seen or heard from again.
Avatar f tn To be honest the thing I talk about the most with this other man is my father and his current health. The other man has been through the same thing with his grandmother whom raised him. My husband has never lost a parent, and unless you have been through it you just dont get it. My friend tells me that it is the stress and sadness I am feeling that has helped get me in this situation.
250084 tn?1303311035 biotin (learned here of course) and B complex. I got the sublingual ones at a health food store. Biotin supposed to help with skin/hair loss and B complex with energy, depression, several things. As a few vitamins we aren't supposed to do lot of, A, Iron.....kind of hard to go with a multi vit.
