So Thursday night is MTX night for me and boy have I been suffering this weekend? I'm not sure why this week has been so different but I spent most of Friday being sick and with a dreadful headache and upset tummy. I've hardly eaten anything all weekend as just not been able to face it. I have been so tired. Its like someone has just zapped what little energy I had left. Which is so hard when you have a young family to look after.
But worst of all I lost so much hair on Saturday that I gave in and had it cut into a shorter style (had a good 6inches cut off). Even my hairdresser who I have been going to for years said how shocked she was at the amount that is coming out and also the condition that my hair is now in. It's gone incredibly dry and is breaking off as well as falling out :0( I know it's incredibly vain but I am so upset about it. In the grand scheme of things it is only hair but It still makes me sad.
Does anyone else loose hair as a result of MTX? I am due to go back to see my Rheumatology team next week so I will speak to them about it. Someone did mention taking more folic acid? Does anyone have any ideas? Also I've been recommended taking Pure Aloe Vera? Can anyone recommend?
