Hair loss continues… good thing I had a lot of hair to begin with


Well, the hair loss continues.  Sigh.  Starting last September, before I resumed treatment for Lyme, I started losing a large clump of hair with every shower.  Here’s how much:

And this is just what I lose while I’m finger-combing the conditioner through my hair.  It doesn’t include what I lose during the shampoo or throughout the day.  Yikes!  Good thing I had a lot of hair to begin with or else I would definitely be bald by now.  It’s very thin in places, but not “need a hat” stage yet.

I personally think this is related to Babesia, another tick borne disease that I just started treating for.  I actually get chills in my scalp.  Weird!

    I’ve heard of it, but never looked into it at all.

    I currently have lyme disease. Started treatment 2 months ago. Did your hair ever stopped falling out and did it grow back?

    The hair loss seems to come and go. It got a bit better after adjusting thyroid medications and adding Vitamin D3 to my regimen. But, I do have times where the roots of my hair hurt and then I lose some more. I have had hair grow back, but it’s definitely not as thick as it used to be.
