    If you are losing all of your body hair, it is important to seek medical advice. This can be due to several different medical conditions, so it is important to get a diagnosis from a medical professional. The use of Best Castor Oil is depending on the cause of your hair loss, a doctor can recommend treatments to help you regrow the hair or slow down the hair loss. Additionally, you can make lifestyle changes to help promote healthy hair growth, such as eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and avoiding harsh hair products.

    i have to say reading this really made an impact.

    quiet noise, i think you need to take chinorlz advice and seek some help. i personally wise that i looked good without hair, i think it looks really cool and suits your aesthetic really well. in the darkest situations you can always find a little bit of brightness, hold on to it. i wish you the best of luck and hope that you will be well.

    I'll relate a quick story about medical diagnoses and the internet.
    I had some heart rhythm issues that were eventually diagnosed. The cardiologist who diagnosed me put me on 2 medications and I was told I'd have to take them the rest of my life.
    I freaked out, googled the ailment and found a forum of people who were suffering the same as me. Most agreed it was incurable and gets worse over time. There were literally hundreds of suggestions and hypotheses about it since the medical world really hasn't been able to sort it out.
    I basically conceded to a life of 'woe is me' and lived my life scared shitless of death for about 6 months straight.

    Eventually, I put time and effort into finding the best cardiologist I could find in the area. She immediately took me off of the medication, told me to quit worrying and reminded me that we all die eventually.

    That was 10 years ago this past Feb. I've had no real serious issues in the past 10 years and in fact, they've been the best 10 years of my life.
    So after having written myself off based on one doctor's opinion and reading a forum on the internet where people were suffering the same ailment as me, I'm living well.

    The moral to the story is that only a fool concedes to any particular fate. I understand your worry and concern but there are literally millions of case studies to back up the idea that stress releases a lot of hormones that make every condition worse.
    And if you don't think that stress can cause things like your hair to fall out or your heart to be erratically or your stomach to bleed, you're fooling yourself.
    Read up a bit on psychosomatic issues and the placebo effect.
    Write down the things you're worried about, come to terms with them and live your life.

    We tend to internalize problems but when put into context, they're not really that bad. Take this kid for instance. He has plenty of hair but it looks like he may not have a place to sleep or a pair of shoes.
    Keep it in perspective.

    I think you've just been overly worried with what you're experiencing and of course the Internet feeds this in various forms. Go see another doc if you would like. If you are losing lateral eyebrows and have increased fatigue another possibility is hypothyroidism but you'll need blood work done for Tsh t3 t4 to check. Not to mention I'm just pulling this from your written descriptions here.

    You have essentially self diagnosed based on readings online and obscure self-feeding forums that really aren't good or safe sources of medical/health knowledge.

    Good luck with your search for a potential diagnosis. You can pm me if you have other questions.

    Go to another one, ask for a specialist, don't let go. I know what happened to you can be shocking but to put it behind you you need answers and the reassurance that it isn't permanent (hint: it's not).

    i agree but to be fair this topic digressed a lot

    quiet noise came in asking for fashion advice and some of us, myself included, got caught up a bit in the whole losing all body hair, diagnosis, etc part..

    but like he said since we are already here... even the best doctors may not be able to tell you what is wrong with you exactly..no matter how many tests were ran..but that is how it is with the medical world; doctors don't know everything BUT it is still important to go, and have the tests done for yourself personally, and if that is still the case, where you've been to a good amount of doctors/specialist (not just two or three) and no one can give you a solid answer.. then go back and think of the best one you've been to, and see if you guys can work on monitoring your progress to make sure that really, all you're losing is hair..and that nothing else may come out from this, though you did mention increase fatigue and other stuff..you might want to consider asking change of diet--there are natural ways to try and strengthen your body (combating fatigue)

    i know how frustrating it is, to have doctors tell you they don't know what is wrong with you time after time

    i have been to a doctor but i dont think he looked deep enough into my issue to be entitled to place a diagnosis.

    i dont really think this belong here but since we already got started i want to say that ive been in contact with other people experiencing the same symptoms and they have visited some of the best doctors in world without any results or answers. nobody knows anything about how this shit works... ive been to my local doctor and he said that it was all due stress but he didnt even look at my hair.

    i know that i have to calm down and stop predicting the worst and all that, but how would you react if you where in my shoes?

    No but the causes, possible long term effects and other variables are TOTALLY unknown to you. Go see a doctor or two.

    You noticed symptoms but you don't have the background and organizational backing (test labs, network of practitioners, etc) to make a diagnostic, stop asking like you do.
