Glandular fever and hair coming out watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently getting over glandular fever. I didn't get the classic symptoms; it was revealed through a blood test.
    Back in feb (before I knew about my GF but I would likely have had it at this time) I noticed my hair was coming out. Around this time I also got vertigo and I lost some weight (I'm already slim so this brought me down quite a lot) I started taking a million and one supplements but none stopped it.
    Now it's not quite as bad as before but there's still more coming out than there should be. The loss is even, and my hair has started looking thinner but luckily I had a good head of hair to begin with so it's not very noticeable.
    Also, my weight is slowly coming back. I know extreme weight loss can make your hair fall out and whilst I probably only lost 7lbs I'm already thin so it would have been more stressful for my body.
    My hairdresser said my hair is coming back because I have lots of baby hairs and I've been using Nioxin shampoo, cond, and hair treatment for the last 4 weeks. Whilst it's good that my hair is coming back I still feel like a lot is falling out

    Ha anyone else experienced this? What did you do? How long did it take to stop?
