Don't know whether your doctor would test B12, Vit D , ferritin, folate etc. Unlikely to test zinc- just add good quality dose yourself to see any difference after 2/3 months


Have you checked if it’s a side effect of your medication your on. I no ive lost a load of mine but mines due to my Dmards and I think age lol 😂 x

I was told off my doc it takes three months for a med to effort your hair. But if you book an appointment and tell your doc about your hair they will get your blood tested and that will let them no what is causing it x

Differently get the blood tests done as they can tell a lot from them , question the meds your on as well, also terrible heads cannot be very comfortable for you , get an appointment think if you say uve terrible headaches they might get you in sooner I hope so xxxxx

Hi sweetie speak with your gp and they should be able to help you. My hair falls out quite a bit but apparently they tell me that can happen as you get older and also take medication. I truly hope that you will get a answer soon sweetie. Sorry about your headaches call your eye specialist secretary and ask her to speak with you specialists and tell him that you are getting headaches and see what they say it could be the eye drops. Please take good care of yourself my dear friend. Love and hugs 🤗🤗🌹🌹😘😘💕💕

You should definitely go to GP and they will probably test your thyroid levels. Good luck x
