So I've been losing my hair for a few years now. It's an all over thinning (not breaking, it falls off from the root), and it's definitely noticeable when you look back at older pictures of me and compare them to current ones. Ex.: '04: '08 (it was still full then): And Oct. '11: Anyway. It's thin, I lose a lot. That's all I know. According to my blood work, I'm "fine". Drs. agree that "something" is probably wrong, but they don't know what. I've been to my primary care, a dermatologist, and a rheumatoid Dr. Have had glucose tolerance testing done to check for diabetes, all the standard blood work, thyroid is always fine, blah blah blah. The only med. I took was birth control, which I went OFF of for almost 7 months just to see if I'd notice a difference. Never did, Drs. (including my OB Dr.) all agree that they don't think the BC would cause this, so as of a month ago, I am back on it (it's a low dose Estrogen pill). I take a prenatal vitamin + Biotin daily. Tried one of the Andrew Lessman hair vitamins for months and saw no results. I'm sick of being almost 25 and losing my hair. I try not to stress about it (I know stress can = hair loss!), but it is concerning, especially with some of the other symptoms I have (which I won't get into unless y'all ask). I'm just tired of Drs. not having any answers, and half of them blowing me off.. that is until I pull out older pictures of myself. Then they go "Oh, yeah.. it has thinned out a lot." Uh, duh! I'm not making this up. I was reading today on a forum and someone mentioned acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbs. They saw results fairly quickly, lots of new growth. So I'm thinking, well, I've tried just about everything else, why not? Has anyone here tried it, if so, what did you think? Or, any other suggestions for my hair? I'm open to just about anything at this point!
