Hi All! I am hoping someone can shed some light on what is going on with my hair. This story starts a long time ago. When I turned 21, my hair started falling out. It was bad, I lost about 50% of my hair, but somehow the problem worked itself out. My hair was thin, but I still had some, and the thinness wasn't too noticable. Through giving birth to 3 kids, my hair fell out, but nothing past what was normal. Yes, I did not have the thick hair of my youth, but still I had some hair, so I wasn't too worried. When I turned 40 last year, much to my surprise, I started breaking out with acne. My dermatologist prescribed spironolactone, and my face immediately cleared up. And after 2 months on it, I saw lots of little hairs growing all over my scalp! I thought after 20 years I found the answer to my hair-loss problem. Alas, it was not to be! Another few months after that, my hair loss increased to unbelievable amounts. For about 9 months now, my hair loss has been horrible. I have lost 50% of my hair now, and though the loss seems to be slowing down since I stopped the spiro over the summer (it was making me exhausted and depressed too), I am still losing too much hair. I have been on sythetic thyroid (Levoxyl) for years now, and I just learned from this web site that it has caused hair loss in others. Maybe that is my problem, too, but I went through years of taking it with no ill effect on my hair. I have no idea what to think about spiro and levoxyl and my hair! Does anyone have any ideas? Or have you been through the same thing? I know this is hormonal, but I can't find a doctor who will actually take the hair loss thing seriously. I am so glad that I found this site. It helps just to know that there are other women going through what I am. Blessings to all of you! Thanks for reading my post!
