Stress related hair loss – WRassman,M.D. BaldingBlog
I’ve never really had hair problems, my parents have full heads of hair and barely anyone in my family has hair problems of any type. Last year I went through some very rough months which have left me with some anxiety and other problems and during those months I noticed a very drastic decline in my hair. Basically from full density, can’t see the scalp, to very dry, thin and low density hair. All my blood work is always fine, my testosterone levels are fine my vitamins are fine (got tested for vitamin d levels). Has anyone here experienced that?
In my 32 years practicing hair related conditions, I see stress as a major accelerator for genetic hair loss. It even hits people without genetic hair loss in presentations such as Telogen Effluvium which can reverse in time as stress reduces
