Avatar f tn Stress is a huge reason for hair loss on anyone. My mom experienced hair loss while undergoing treatments. I have experienced hair loss for stress, medications for migraines (seizure meds for prevention will do it every time). Also my doctor put me on a great prenatal vitamin that helped with my hair loss and I started to have new growth. Soak with your doctor and see what he recommends. Could be a simple imbalance due to stress in itself or the cancer side effects.

Avatar n tn You might try taking (believe it or not) prenatal vitamins at least 4 hours after your thyroid meds. They have essential vitamins in them that protect somehow against hair loss. This is something I experienced being low thyroid, but as my TSH levels are getting better, my hair has almost stopped coming out. Just a suggestion and I would ask your doctor what he thinks, first. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn I loose a lot of hair every time I wash my hair, I still do not see any physical signs of hair loss on my head, that is when one looks in the mirror and by feeling.

I am having headaches often, and have been allergic to different foods, like dairy products, shell sseafood & coloring added to foods, Red-40 & Yellow, since December of '98.
Avatar n tn Anemia is common in pregnancy and a big cause for female pattern hair loss. Maybe iron supplements would help. But blood tests would say for sure. Also thyroid count (low or high) can affect hair loss.

BARLEYPOP, I would love the address for the hair loss website. Both my 91-yr-old mother and 60-yr-old sister have thick, thick hair. This thin thing is really beginning to get to me.

Avatar n tn There are vitamins that are just for your hair, nails and skin. or maybe a prenatal because they help with that as well. I'm sorry I can't give you anymore insite however give those a try. it won't hurt.
Avatar m tn I had lost all of my side-swept bangs that were extremely thick and my most of my hair loss was around the front of my face so my forehead was getting bigger and bigger and the sides of my hair line had receded so badly that I started wearing what I thought was cute little hair sashes and hats. I found myself the center of a couple of bad jokes, though and so then became rather self-councious.
Avatar f tn There is nothing in prenatal vitamins that encourage hair growth. That's a myth. This is a hormonal thing that differs from woman to woman in pregnancy. Just like some people are sicker than others.
