hair loss =[ - January 18th 2009, 11:51 AM

Well recently ive been finding loads of hair sticking to me, and i got it cut short of Friday but it's still happening and it feels like its thinning to, the last time i went to the doctor they said i could be anaemic but my friend said that is related to hair loss to.

I don't know what it is because i've been really stressed recently, and i get pain in my leg and arm =[.

i just dont know what to do

Darlin' don't leave me out here in the cold
I'm begging you baby don't leave me out here on my own I'll die, If you don't hold me tight Tonight, I couldn't make it outside If I tried, So please let me in lover,
Be kind ♥

Stress will often cause hairloss but of course it could be any number of things. If you're concerned speak to a doctor.

stress could cause it, or it could be something like else. I would recommend calling your doctor and getting an appointment. That is the best way to figure out what may be causing it.

Eeps. Definitely see your doctor. It's probably from the stress.

Are you get all the right nutrients and such? That causes hair loss/growth.

There is a shampoo called Nioxin- it was amazing on helping grow back hair.

Go on and hold her
till the screaming is gone
Go on believe her
when she tells you
'Nothings wrong'

Even if I tried could you be less than an addiction?

Yep, like others have said, it's probably down to stress. Are you talking to someone to help with your stress levels? It's no good to stress out, not only does it cause hair loss but it causes a number of other things like headaches, anxiety ect etc.

Personally, i would go back to the doctor and have some tests run. It could be anemia like she has said, if this is the case - you will need iron supplements.

take care x

& it's just like she's in another world.
