I am a 43 year old female and have been plagued by yearly chronic hair loss phases since my 20's which have made my life so unbearable I have contemplated suicide many times.I will have maybe a period of 4 months moderate hair loss (still more than I remember when my hair was "normal") then it just starts falling out heavily more or less overnight.Handfuls of hair particularly on washing.I counted about 800 hairs on just one wash once!!!! I have seen doctors dermatologists tricholigists and had hair mpull tests and I think just about every blood test going and no real explanatio.One specialist actually said to me "Well you haven't gone bald yet so whats your problem"!!!! Tonight it has started again and i just dont think i can through all again.I haven't actually worn my hair down for over 10 years as the embarrassment would be worse. At least in a bun or ponytail you can disguise it a bit. Can anyone please give me some advice on why this might be happening and how I can get through this?
