Stress or Thyroid Problem makes your hair fall out?
My head got tender and then a patch of hair fell out...Is it Stress or a Thyroid Problem or Both???
Help, Dr. Weaver!
I am a 52 year old single mom. About two months ago my head became very tender and sore in one spot and then 1 week later my hair fell out. The bald spot is about the size of a quarter. I know I have been under a lot of stress this summer trying to get three kids off to college. Also, a couple of months ago my thyroid levels were elevated. My doctor is trying to adjust my medication level now.
Can you please advise me why this may have happened and what can I do to ensure my hair grows back?
