Has anyone suffered hair loss as a result of drugs or the RA? I have just had a blood test and apparently it's an abnormal reading for iron which is causing it. The hospital have told the GP to increase folic acid from 1 tablet to 6 and I am seeing GP tomorrow about the blood results. My hair has halved in thickness and is breaking and shedding for the last 4 weeks now. It makes things even more depressing - especially as I am getting married next year. I eat a varied diet but not much red meat - though I do eat broccoli and spinach and take a multi vitamin when I remember. Just bought some expensive Kerastase hair products and they did help it look better but it comes out in my hands in the shower which is really upsetting. I am thinking about stopping humira too - read so many scary stories about cancer and MS that I wonder if I am setting myself up for a life of more misery an lately it doesn't even seem to work - I still have pains all over. I have suffered breathlessness and fungal infections. Anyone else got humira worries? I am on a downward spiral at the moment
