I started noticing it a few days ago. I am wondering if it could be related to having dyed my hair a few weeks ago, but dye couldn't cause THAT much hair to be lost...could it? It's incredibly disconcerting. I do all this work to try and grow my hair out and now it's falling out. I'm really hoping it's the hair dye, but I do know that hair loss is a common symptom of hyperthyroidism, and I am losing hair in small patches on other parts of my body, so it is very possible that my thyroid is doing this.
I have horrible stomach cramps today and am accepting the diarrhea that come with it, but it hurts so bad I've been sweating. Thyroid disease really does affect everything. That's the worst part. My stomach is fucked up, my temperature is fucked up, my cardiovascular system is fucked up...Now that Irene is gone, I am going to be more vigilant about calling doctors since offices will be opening again. Because this hair loss is the last straw. I've had it up to here, not gonna lie. It's embarrassing, as well as debilitating. Really embarrassing.
If anyone reading this is familiar with thyroid disease and hair loss, could they be connected in what I'm experiencing?
