About Me:
Hi. I experienced my first episode of acute hairloss at the age of 15, it lasted for 2 years. I never regained this hair.In my twenties, I also experienced a few episodes of hairloss linked to exam stress, dieting, emotional stress. At this stage my hair had thined considerably, but because I had so much hair as a young teenager, it probably wasnt obvious to a lot of people. Two years ago at the age of 37, I experienced another episode of hairloss lasting 8 months or so, episode really thinned my hair out to a very distressing level. One morning last april, I woke up to what felt like a sunburnt scalp. The scorching itching sensation was unbearable within a week i was losing like 500 hairs per day, the pain and loss has somewhat subsided, but I continue to loss hair, At this stage I have a bald patch just off my central parting on the top of my head. Obviously, I will need a wig soon.
Dermatologists feel that I have a combination of FPB & CT. I havent had any biopsy to confirm this.
I feel as if my entire life has been dominated my hairloss & that I have wasted so much precious time in dispair. XXXB

Hi Barb

No I did not! I know a lot of women on another hair loss site who complain about it. I think that it seems to be more prevalent when hair loss is very active - my pain was at its worst when my hair was literally pouring off my head. I still shed now, but not in those numbers. Some people with AA complain also of scalp pain and strange sensations.

Thanks for the friends request. Can empathise on the sunburn thing - I had a long period of really suffering with scalp pain.
