I was wondering if anyone has experienced hair loss from CRPS? I was diagnosed over a year ago after being injured at work. It was initially my back/rib/torso area but has spreaded to my shoulder/arm/wrist/hand/lower leg and foot. About 4 months ago I noticed my hair begin to become very rough and shed a lot and about a month ago it begin to come out in clumps! I cut my hair off because I couldn't stand to just watch my hair come out. As of today its still coming out as I rub my hands through it 😢😢
I now have a SCS which my PM doctor says should stop the spread. The SCS is actually working well (despite my skepticism). My pain levels are down with the help of meds. I also can tell the difference when I don't take the meds with it( I'm desperately wanting to kick the opioids, hate the feeling). I'm slowly adjusting to the idea of the new life that I have been given.
