Hope you are all well.
My health story is long and horrific. But will try to be brief.
In 2018 i was misdiagnosed with graves' disease. The carbimazole (20mg) wrecked my thyroid. (and other organs...)
Since 2019 Dcotors have been trying to get me to go on Levothroixne - my thyroid is small and damaged and of course not working.
I finally gave in and have been on 25micrograms for 3 months. But my hair is falling out again.
This happened on the carbimazole (20mg) but that was only one of the adverse reactions I had to that drug.
I have no choice really with the levothyroxine - my thyroid doesn't work. My Doctors have been clear since 2019 - it will only be a matter if time I have to be on this drug for life.
i am lost. My endocrinologist has said the hair loss may stop - it may be other factors (it's not no other substantial change to my health)
Anyway my question is: Has anyone experienced hair loss on this drug and does it stop? I already lost a substantial due to the carbimazole in 2018. It never really grew back after that wrecked my health - but the hair loss stopped after i stopped taking the carbimazole i should never have been on.
I am not on any other meds. i am 42 years old and female.
Thank you all.
