Forgot that part. This ALL started with perfect hair at 39/40. I was on thyroid medication because I was slightly hypo. Then they increased dose. 5-6 months later the shedding started. I went off of everything for almost a year when the shedding started at the time that was only stopping minocycline and the thyroid medication. 9 months later I was very hypo and my neck was swollen. I’m now on 125mcg T4 and 10mg T3 daily. Hair has fallen off a cliff after adding the T3. My levels are all in range now.Not OP but you need your thyroid hormones checked, you sound like a classic case of hyperthyroidism.
I was hyper until about the age of 26, and prior to that I could not crack 150 pounds to save my life, I lifted and ate like a f*****g maniac and I still remained skinny, just extremely cut, but I was constantly under threat of being underweight.
It wasn't until I developed hypothyroidism, which is an inevitability for most people who are hyperthyroid, and I got on exogenous thyroid hormone that my body was able to even come close to gaining weight from lifting after I got my thyroid hormone dosage where it should be.
