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 was waking in the night with migraines and now it's been three weeks with not a hint of one. I have read and understand all the side effects. The hair loss, the confussion, the tingling, the weight loss (for me this is not a good thing, I am thin to begin with) But I would rather deal with any of these side effects then deal with a minute of what of was prescribed Topamax for....MIGRAINES!!!! Horrible, Painful, Migraines, a pain so bad that it makes one want to curl up and die.
Avatar n tn I don't know how effective it would be for someone that isn't being treated for diabetes, pcos, insulin resistance, etc. In my personal experience it hasn't been a "magic diet pill" so to speak. Perhaps its because I am a diabetic. I have been taking this medication for a little over a year. I did not lose any weight initially but did notice it helped suppress my appetite.
Avatar f tn A good sulfate free shampoo is an excellent choice and if your hair dresser is serious about your hair they will discount or even try the trial sizes until you are happy with a product. If they are not interested in the health of your hair, you may want to ask others to recommend someone to you that does. The price you pay for experimenting with various remedies without success can cost more than an experienced hairstylist.
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 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 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 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 Speaking from my own experience, if your wife is still losing hair, which is a gross (in the sense of large) symptom, she is under-medicated. I use hair loss as the easiest way to monitor whether I am under-medicated, as it happens almost instantaneously when some stoopid endo has insisted on lowering my T3 meds, and grows back as soon as the T3 is raised. I have gone through the hair-loss/re-growth process 3 times now. The other symptoms of dry skin. weight gain, irregular periods.....
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 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 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 f tn I have always been a very physically active and hard working person, sometimes doing what was considered men's work. Was taught by my father to do what needs to be done no matter how difficult. I was an avid horse person and took up running in my late teens. Have always stayed active even when pregnant. Have never been one to sit around and watch TV or be a couch potato, always needed to be doing something active and physical.
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 You can look up who owns that domain online -- apparently this is not a woman, it's a guy from Denmark, real name: Dariusz -- I see his email too, but I won't post that, since it's illegal! Doesn't that guy have anything better to do?? You ladies are makin' me laugh, and I'm just not being very productive, is it Friday yet?? oh well.
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 m tn LOL, you are so right. After the riba rage, the anemia, wieght loss, hair falling out and everything else what's a little Sanjaya? We are the heppers!!! We rule! However, ear plugs are a very good idea. I treasure my "old time rock & roll" and have a hard time dealing with some young punk destroying it.
Avatar f tn Technically, the baby never did develop, so I cannot fault him for the literal definition.But he bawled like a baby when we suffered our first loss together. But he overcame his grief alot sooner than I did. Do I think he is a POS because of that? Absolutely not. Do I seek the comfort of another man because he wasn't asking me 100 times aday how I felt while pg?
Avatar n tn I dont think IBS causes you to lose 100lbs in 9 months,hair loss , heavy chocolate/black periods,and constant back/abdominal/pelvic pain! I'd say we all go on talk shows to get the msg out and how dr's dont take us serious and blow us off.It's our bodies and we all know when something isnt "right".I thought female dr would be better but its just as bad.When you try to tell them something they like to remind you they are the dr.

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.
Avatar n tn do breast make the person? What about weight loss and gain? Hair changes, long, short, brown, blonde? I get that there is physical attraction but when you make the commitment to marry a person, and enter into that holy sacrament , is it strictly for that physical reason? Because if that is the case, then you should not marry that individual. Marriage should be so much deeper than that.
Avatar m tn I had posted this in the "woman's health" forum area and got no comments back at all. That area doesn't seem as active of a community as this one. So I will re-post what I posted there related to my wife's hormone levels. As far as thyroid she is being treated with Armour and just got bumped up to 180 mg (from 165). her FT4 are BELOW range, her FT3 are about 25% to 50% of the range but the range is also wider than most ranges we see here.
Avatar n tn I went today for my first week weight check and my second shot.....my weight loss for my first week is 9.5 pounds!!!! Anyone else using Phentermine and B12? I would love to hear how other people have done on these meds. Good Luck to everyone trying...I want to hear your story!
Avatar n tn When we speak of emotional distress it actually can be coupled with medicine problems too ... believe it or not some of the ups/downs can be attributed to the loss of part of you and being it isn't Cancer is wonderful news to hear but at the same time makes you ? and wonder why me? Why did I have this whole thing taken out and now find out it isn't Cancer? These are some thoughts I wanted to add to the great info above. I'd insist on bloodwork b4 the 3week mark given your symptoms ...
Avatar n tn Apparently it can happen if semen backs up into the prostate due to interrupted ejaculation, reverse gravity position, etc, and then hardens (could be hours to days later). They suggested over-hydrating and then "rubbing it out", but I usually just take a couple of Advil and sleep on my stomach.
