I was diagnosed with MS back in June. My doctor put me on Kesimpta. I've had seizures in the past, and had another tonic clonic recently so my doctor upped my Lyrica (which was prescribed after the MS diagnosis) to seizure-control levels. I (honestly) thought I was doing great. The Lyrica was (in my opinion) helping me feel better, so I thought I was on the right combination of medications. Two days ago, after I had showered and washed my hair, I realized that I had patches of missing hair on my head. My hair (normally) is VERY thick and curly, and so the bald areas (each is about the size of a dime) are pretty obvious. Likewise, I just noticed that the hair on my arms is also gone!
Has anyone had experience with hair loss caused by either MS medications, or the MS itself? This is totally new to me so I'm a bit shocked! Thanks in advance for any insight!!
