Exhaustion/Hair loss/Faint
I am a 22 year old female who is suddenly exhausted all the time. To the point of taking frequent naps during the day when I have never done that before. A larger volume of hair is falling out now, and I get dizzy and lightheaded very easily. My last period only lasted 2 days, and there was only a little blood (spotting essentially) I am normally very healthy and very regular, so this all seems very out of the ordinary to me. Some people have mentioned it may be stress, but if it is, it's all subconcious because I don't feel it.

If anyone has any ideas that would be most helpful!

Thanks!

(p.s. Not sexially active at the moment, no i'm not pregnant or anything in that realm. ^^"")

Heat intolerance

Breathlessness
Increased bowel movements
Light or absent menstrual periods

All of these symptoms are also very common with CFIDS. The reason for dizziness is because CFIDS patients' were found to have a low circulating blood volume. If your thyroid levels are normal, consider getting evaluated and tested for CFIDS. We have a good discussion going on right now about CFIDS in the "Chronic weird bothersome symptoms, Docs can't figure them out" thread.

It sounds like Hypothyroidism to me...not Hyper. I had the same symptoms. Get a TSH blood test and find out what your levels are. This is easily treated.
