Hi- This is yet another night that I can not sleep and am awake and obsessing about my hair loss....I finally decided to post on here in the hope that someone may be able to help, or at least encourage me- as I am going CRAZY!!! To summarize my story- I t am a 36 year old mother of three little boys. I think I have always lost a good bit of hair, but never really worried about it, as I had a lot to start with! I am also extremely hairy in other places- everywhere but my head!! In 2006, I remember noticing even more hair than normal in the bathroom, and a difference in my appearance- counted over 200 hairs falling out at one point!! Went to my dr., derm, and gyno,- but no one took me seriously. From there, it gets kind of fuzzy- I don't know if my hair got better or I simply ignored it, but it really was a non-issue for a few years. Then, this past year my nightmare began. I had my third son in May (had GREAT pregnancy hair!!) and by July- I remember standing in the bathroom in our beach house with hair everywhere!! When I came home and went to my hairdresser- she too, noticed and freaked out!! This has sent me into a complete downward spiral- For the past 8 months I have been obsessed with this- trying everything I know to do in hopes of getting my life back. I am currently using 5% Rogaine and taking 75 mg of spiro- also Nizoral shampoo, laser comb, and many vitamins, herbs. My loss has slowed to about 20-30 a day, but no real growth. The only thing my dr. mentioned that I haven't tried is desogen- I want to try but am scared it may get even worse. Any advice or experience with this? My hair is just really thin all over the top of my head. I have spent $1200 on a topper and more on clip in extensions, but still don't feel very comfortable with them. I try to get by with toppix and the like, but it is always on my mind. I HATE this- I cry all of the time, can't sleep, and feel like I am missing out on my life with my children. I feel so hopeless and can't see myself ever being happy or accepting this-it is truly ruining my life. I have even gone to a shrink about this- but I don't think anyone who is not experiencing it can understand- Can anyone please help me? Thanks!!
