Question

I have noticed that I have been losing a lot of hair over the last couple of months.  When I get up in the morning I notice a lot of hair on my pillow, and when I wash and dry my hair with a hair dryer a lot more falls out than it use too.

I have lost a bit of weight and feel quite tired on a regular basis.

Could this be stress  or could it be something more serious?

Answer

The fact that you are losing weight and your energy levels are low suggests there may be something wrong.

One of the possible causes could be hormonal, and especially a problem with your thyroid problems. This is not likely to be serious but can be easily diagnosed by your doctor with simple blood tests and corrected with the proper treatments and advice.

The trouble with these kinds of symptoms – hair loss, weight loss and energy loss are so ‘non-specific’ that they really don’t point to any particular problem.

In fact, you are right to wonder if it might be stress , because these symptoms can be caused by either physical or emotional problems. I suggest you get a proper check-up and establish exactly what the cause is. So seek advice from both your doctor and your trichologist.
