I'm a 22 years old female and I've had general health problems for about 6 months now.
My main symptoms are : excessive hair loss, dry/coarse hair, itchy/painful scalp, fatigue, bloating, constipation, dizziness, slow cicatrisation, cold...
I've been on the pill for more than 6 years.. then in July I got an IUD, but had it removed 3 months later (I had a lot of yeast infections during that time) because I thought it was the reason of my problems, mainly the hair loss (hormonal imbalance).. then I started the pill again (end of October). Since then, things got worse but my yeast infections stopped... in Novembre the extreme fatigue and dizziness started.. then I got blood tests and found out I have hypothyroidism... I've been taking medications for 8 weeks now.
Here are my latest results after taking synthroid :
TSH : 4,09 mU/L
T4 : 14 pmol/L
T3 : H 2,5 nmol/L
The fatigue and dizziness have stopped most of the time, but my hair is still falling out alarmingly.. I haven't used a hair dryer or curling iron from the moment it all started (august 2017), I'm not brushing my hair either and I'm using Nizoral shampoo..
I've been on a gluten free diet for one week now, but nothing changed.. my hair is still falling and I noticed that it's worst the day after I wash them... (I try not to wash them more than twice a week) they are very dry.. I tried using tee tree oil.. but it doesn't seem to help..
Other information... In April I had a very stressful breakup... and I heard stress can be very damaging for the body..
Also, I still have a little bit pain during my sexual relations (during the penetration, at the entry of my vagina) even though the yeast infections symptoms have stopped.
So, I don't know what can be causing all of this.. I'm looking for anything you can think of...
Maybe I'm not being patient enough with my body, but it's been 6 months and my hair is giving me anxiety.
Thank you so much!
