Soooo...since the onset of my AA, i've noticed a few things. Obviously, I'm losing my hair. One way I can tell that more sections are about to go is that I get this weird tingly feeling on my scalp, then it kind of goes numb and itchy, then the hair falls out. Right now, most of my scalp and eyebrows have this strange sensation. Eyebrows are thinning, hair is definitely a lot thinner, too. Big bald patches. Good times :)
But another thing I've noticed is that I'm starting to get these intensely itchy areas in places all over my body. You know that fine hair that grows on your face and pretty much everywhere else? It's not really visible but it's there? Yeah, i'm pretty sure I'm losing that too because when I touch those areas, it has that weird, numb but completely smooth feel - like the patches on my scalp. Does this mean my AA will eventually turn into AU? Has anyone else experienced this type of thing? I know alopecia is unpredictable, but does anyone know, once it starts happening on your body, what the chances of AA turning into full blown AU are? Is there like a half-assed version of AU where you only lose body hair in patches? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
This itching is driving me craaaazy! Aaaah!
I am going thru the same thing! Just recently realized it on my arms...I too got that tingly itchy feel.
