Tell tale signs

hi everyone,i was wondering if i could get some advice from your stories about AA when the patches started forming.
i have 2 patches just fully grown and 2 new patches which are completely bald, but before my hair falls out i have tenderness on that area of the scalp as if iv had my hair in a tight ponytail all day.......anyone else have any signs that their hair was about to fall out?
