Hair Loss

I've been diagnosed with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, Degenerative Disk Disease, Osteoarthritis, Spondalytis, Hashimoto's Disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.  During the past 18 months there has been an increase in the amount of hair that I lose daily.  When I shower I lose an entire handful of hair.  Brushing my hair causes the same.  My brushes are full of hair.  It used to take well over a month for so much hair to gather in a brush; now it only takes a couple of days.  My hair is considerably thinner.  Could this be caused by one of the illnesses I've been diagnosed with?  Could the medicines I take cause it?  (blood pressure and thyroid meds, Wellbutrin, Hydrocodone, Morphine Sulfate, Methylin)

Hi.
You can definately get hairloss from Hashimotos, it can cause hairloss and thinning.
Plus the RA, and MCTD, can also cause hairloss too.

I hope this has helped you.
If you need anymore help im here.
Take care
Nicola
