    is here anyone who is shedding constantly without taking meds.

    How do you live with it? It drives me crazy. Every time I touch my head, im losing hundreds of hair.

    Cant think about anything else. I barely go outside anymore.

    I brushed my hair for less than a minute and that's what fell out.

    seriously i don't know what to do. Every day the same sh*t. Seriously how can you have such an aggressive mpp without balding in the family.

    Accepting that you're the first bald guy in the family and lost all your hair within 3 years ?

    What would I give to get out of this hell !

    Have you gone in to see a dermatologist? That much loss might be due to some other issue that they could help pinpoint.

    yes i went to 6 different derms over the last two years. Blood is ok. Some said no need to worry. The most recent one said male pattern baldness. But almost every derm suck, they just tell you the obvious and take your money. When it all started, they were saying everything is fine. Now they say, oh it could be male pattern baldness, because they can obviously see that my hair is thinned out.
    Nobody cares if your side-, arm-, beard- or other hair are also thinning.
    They just don't give a sh*t. maybe i wouldn't either, if i had a no hairloss.

    Did this begin suddenly? Were you on any hair meds at any point? Did it worsen?

    Bloodwork done? Thryroid okay?

    Give me some details and pics and I'll see if anything catches my eye.

    This hit me in a similar way. I’ve thrown a bunch of meds and supplements at it and it’s still shedding like crazy. If Inhad to do it over. I would have tried a low dose finasteride .25 for 4-6 months before trying anything else. If the shedding doesn’t slow after six I might start looking else where. Telogen Effluvium is extremely rare and in most cases it’s AA. However I believe there could be Telogen Effluvium like shedding can be made worse by certain deficiencies.

    Go hard on your iron, biotin, zinc and see if it helps. Several doctors (Greco, Konior) told me that maxing out Biotin should slow most chronic sheds if it’s not autoimmune.

    also check your thyroid levels but don’t mess with meds unless you are outside of normal as the meds can also lead to loss.

    Minoxidil is not where to start.

    This is my current predicament which brought me to join this forum. I've been shedding like crazy for about two months now. Previous heavy sheds would last maybe a week, two at most but never this long! Has had a serious effect on my mental health.

    Just wanted to say that you're not alone here, I know (as well as many others on this forum) know what you're going through and how it feels.
