I suffered from ARDS AND sepsis in February. I was in ICU for weeks. I was on a ventilator and woke up without use of anything. I had lots of therapy and I am walking again. I still get very dizzy and I have a hard time catching my breath when doing any activity. I have some kidney damage and I am in the process of seeing a Nephrologist. I never feel good anymore. A couple weeks ago I started losing my hair and I am scared to death. Is this normal? My hair has always been important to me. Today I cleaned my brush of hair 3 times. My hair is long and I am going to get it cut. I am scared to death of going bald. I have nightmares of things that happened in the ICU. How do I get through this hair loss. My doctor said nothing to me about losing my hair. I do not want to be bald.
