yep my thyroid has been checked and i mentioned it to the neuro on monday and he seemed to think it was part of the FM/ME but as i haddnt heard anything on here i wanted to see really if it was something i needed to worry about.

mum is going to have her hair cut today so im planning to pop along and chat to the hair dressers their, see if they can give me any tips and chat about short styles with them as im thinking about having a load chopped off!

mum was chatting to a friend the other day who has identical symptoms to me and she was diagnosed as having hyperparathyroid i think i have been tested for this but i might be worth other people getting checked out, i think they just need to test your blood for calcium levels.. gonna ask the doc and report back!

Hi. My hair was falling out too and my nails were starting to curl under. It turned out that some of my meds were stripping vitamin B12 from my system. I started taking a cheap hair & nails vitamin suppliment & things have definitely improved. Not saying this would work for you but it doesn't cost much to try it if nothing else is found.

Cat, thank you so much for the helpful suggestion, I really appreciate it. I have looked into hair extensions when I was in the USA but was told that the weight of them (however slight) could make my hair fall out even quicker? So I'm not sure whether to try them or not, and I don't know where to get them here in Bracknell, England? Thanks again.

Hi there
My hair seems to thin out every year and then grow back. I enquired about this and found out it is a common thing with auto-immune disease.
I went to my Doc and he was mot very helpful as, like you, it was thinning and not falling out in chunks.
My hairdresser came to the rescue with a bottle of Nexus "hair food" shampoo. Not volumising but actual food for the hair which encourages normal growth.
Use dit for 8 weeks and like magic it came back thick and fast. Smells nice and as you only need a very small amount, it lasts a very long time.
Have a look round. It is only sold in salons.
Good Luck

Fibro shouldn't make hair fall out any more than just generally being a bit run down would. If it's coming out in clumps or so that your hair is visibly thinner, that's not a Fibro thing.

Vitamin & mineral deficiencies can be involved in hair loss though and they are often missed in Fibromites as the other symptoms are similar to Fibro.

I've never seen anything about hair falling out with Fybro....although as an ex hairdresser, my thoughts on falling hair with these diseases is a weakened hair folicle. I might be wrong, but that's my best bet so far.

The symptoms of Fybro and Hyopthyroidism are amost identical. Hypo makes your hair fall out. But.....so does the thyroxine that you take for the hypo, so it's a no win situation.

GPs will tell you that you blood test results for the hypo are 'within range' or 'normal'. The range for the TSH is between 0.1 and 5. In America, the range has been cut to 0.1 and 3....cos anywhere near 3 and you feel ill. So, you could be 2.75 for instance, be within range, but still be clinically hypo with all the associated symptoms that go with it. And as I said, there symptoms are almost identical. Any doubt, ask the GP for the figures....he/she has to tell you.
This is an excellent site for finding out all things hypo..
http://thyroid-disease.org.uk/index.php ... &Itemid=92

A lot of people cannot tolerate the effects of the 'synthetic' thyroxine which has replaced the natural pigs thyroxine that used to be used. The pigs thyroxine has converters etc to make our bodies accept it, but as there is a lot of money involved in deals etc by big drug companies to make the synthetic stuff, the natural one has ben outlawed in this country....although America and Australia still prescibe it with no bad effects.

Another thing for hair falling out is lack of B12. That is common both with hypo and fybro.
Again the range is ridiculus....something like 200 to 900. Mine was 250 and I was supposedly ok. One thing that ill give away low B12 is no 'half moons' on your nails. I take this.....

Now I have half moons and my hair is starting to grow back slowly.
