    I am glad you went to a physician. Alopecia areata is treatable and not all that uncommon.

    After the doctor ruled out any genetic reasons he said it might be alopecia areata, but said he would run a full range of tests.


    he said he would have my results by the end of the day and he'd have a nurse call me with them. i'll let you guys know what the nurse says.
    Yeah, make sure they tell you exactly what's wrong, and that they do something. You just can't let your head stay like that.

    I am glad you went to the doctor. Hopefully it goes away soon. If you want tips on how to make your hair look temporarily fuller, I have those on hand, too!
    Anger is also a feeling.

    Glad you saw the doc, Scanty. Could be solved with some ease with steroids. Sorry you're going through this though.

    I knew someone with Alopecia, which is why it came to mind when I initially saw this thread.

    I remember hearing that in more than half the cases, the hair will regrow on its own within the year. It happened for the kid I knew, and she'd lost all of her hair; brows and lashes too. I don't know if your doc mentioned this, but I wouldn't recommend applying too many products to the hairless spots, in efforts to cover it.. it could irritate the follicles. The kid I knew had wanted to apply false lashes but it wasn't recommended. I imagine there are a lot of things you can do to conceal missing hair on the scalp without use of adhesives and such, though.

    Again, best of luck, lady. <3

    The only time I lost hair in large amounts was at the beginning and after each pregnancy. Hormone changes do it.

    Just sayin' ...

    i just got the test results.

    Anemia was negative, my iron levels were near perfect.
    Lupus was negative
    Pregnancy was negative

    THYROID TESTS:
    My TSH level was at 3.9 suggesting my that i may have mild hypothyroidism.


    But the doctor said my hair loss most resembles alopecia areata and that it most likely happened from stress possibly even a few months back. And that it will probably grow back untreated, but he said he would prescribe me a cream to rub on it.
