I started losing my hair when I was 17 after becoming bulimic for a wrestling season to keep my weight down (I only did this for one year). Ever since then I have gone through periods of shedding and at 31 my hair keeps getting thinner, mainly on top, not so much the crown or hairline. The odd thing is sometimes I will not lose much hair for months and then all of a sudden it is non-stop.
It seems that my hair has become hyper sensitive to change, medicine, illness… anything results in shedding. I take propecia (for about 2 years) with little results and Rogain seems just as useless.
There is no history of baldness in my family and the doctors can not seem to find anything. You are my last hope, what could it be and how do I stop it?
You need to develop a personal relationship with a doctor who will:
- examine you by mapping out your hair for miniaturization
- take a careful history to determine what it is that you are actually seeing
- find out if you possibly have some medical disease causing your problem
- care about you and is willing and able to work with you
