I have notice my hair is not falling out as much, seems to have slowed down. I am hoping that means is maybe stopping soon. I have not notice any regrowth. Has anyone had this experience before or is this just part of the cycle? Please help with any advice.
My hair shed like crazy for months, then practically stopped for at least 6 months. I thought that was it. Then it started up again, same as the first time. Shed for probably two months, both times. Then it stopped. Now it rarely seems to shed, but is so very thin and my ophiasis alopecia is still there. I still lose hair, but massive shedding hasn't been happening any more, thank goodness.
I have hair now, after losing 80% of it; this is the second time since my diagnosis. It falls out, slows down, stops, and grows back; I still have some stubborn areas, but they can be hidden. I do get shots; I don't know if the shots work, or the re-growth is part of the cycle. It started growing back last August and is still filling in, but still no fallout after all these months. I do expect it to fall out again sometime in the future; I am enjoying what I've got while I have it. Just made my first hairdresser appointment in 1 1/2 years today. I hope yours grows back; what treatments do you get?
Do you have any itching on the scalp?
I can't find anyone in my family that has ever had alopecia. The doctor just says they don't know why or what caused it. I have only been doing the injections once a month. I am thinking of stopping them.. I just don't know if they are working. the dents in my scalp from the injections are bad, they make my head so tender afterwards and the build up just to get my self ready to go to the doctor is hard for me sometimes. I need to go to the hair dresser and just break me down to go or not to go. Just fell so lost and afraid like I am losing myself to something that I can't get any answers too.
what do you mean by that?
Sorry there was a typo in my last posting and that was the correction.
