    Wondering if anyone has had bad hair loss. Mine is coming out so badly, I am begining to really worry about it. I know I need to ask doctor, but would like to hear from someone who may have had this problem-Thanks-Laverne

    A few year back I was losing so much hair. Being a female in her mid 20's I didn't think it was normal. My Doctor told me it was stress (Hey, another person telling me its all in my head). But it stopped falling out when I started taking a B vitamin complex. The B vitamins also help with my sensitivity to touch. If you're on a lot of Meds do an online search with the meds name and hair loss. Sometimes side effects aren't listed that a lot of people complain about. I know how you feel :(

    can be a cause of hair loss. Have you had your thyroid levels checked?

    Thank you girls, so much. It is wonderful how members take time to help others here.

    I am almost 72, and don`t take much meds--except pain meds. My thyroid has been normal---but I do stay stressed out with these conditions--and depressed-since I am unable to get out much, ot try to sew and etc and start hurting. (You know the feeling).

    Thank you again for such a "quick" reply--
    I am going to start on vitamins-esp the B family.
    Take care----Laverne

    I do hope you find the cause and correct it quickly. I noticed you live in LA...did Katrina do any harm to your home?

    Anyway, keep us posted on how you are coming with your hair. What a pain to deal with losing your hair along with the pain, etc. with the DD.

    My hair really started falling out....and it was already thin. Part of it genetics but I think other part is my health.I take the vits. My throid, etc. is okay. Dr. said nothing can be done on it.

    I remembred a friend that went through months in a hospital and when I saw her she looked beautiful. I asked how she kept her hair looking so good, and that I loved her new hair style. She always kept her hair so nice. She laughed and said it was a wig. Did not look like it at all.

    So when my hair got worse I called and asked her where she got it and she told me from Debra Young cataloges. So I found the site online and they sent me a book. Mine was not expensive at all. A new Dr. I went to did not realize it either, until I told him, he was amazed. I felt he should know that I have the hair loss.

    My DH says I should get a red one for fun.....LOL......I am going to order a couple more.

    Easy to take care of and you look great a minutes notice!
    Hair's to you!!! (Boo)...LOL

    To all, thanks for all the encouragement and help.When you get my age, everything starts shifting and falling--in one place or the other. You start thinking how grateful you are -just to be able to get up next morning, and yourlooks sorta take back stage.

    Sue--I live in north La--so I always miss the huricains--thanks for asking.

    The supplement I bought at health food store is called--Wachters` Nutri Hair Loss Complex.Take care-Love Laverne
