Those are the changes that started about 1.5 yrs ago, Ive lost over half the the hair on my head and what is there is kind of thick and brittle, very dry and seems tho grow to 1/2 inch and fall out or break off, I can literally cut my hair and 2 days later its actually shorter in spots. even my eyebrows are kind of coarse and the outer half has thinned out a lot. I also suffer from fatigue and bouts of depression. Ive tried vitamins and supplements, including hair vitamins but they do nothing at all. everything I read screams hypothyroid but my tests say otherwise.
All my blood tests were normal, Im not deficient on anything. My thyroid tested in the low middle range, I don't remember the number sorry, no hashimotos, testosterone was great for my age 46, My dr. did put me on a low dose of levothyroxine 25mg which I took for a month but had a endo apt so I got off 3 weeks before so she could see my actual levels which once again everything was fine.. thing is I felt so good on the meds, my energy levels jumped up, no depression and about a month after I stopped I noticed I had a spurt of hair growth but then went back to falling out..
Has anyone experienced these symptoms? I just started taking the med again this morning and am taking half dose for a few days, I was real moody for the 1st week I took it
