One of the main symptoms I had before being diagnosed with Hashis last Fall was hair loss. I had a baby & had the usual postpartum hairloss, but then it never stopped! When my first Doc put me on Synthroid (0.25 mg) about the only effect it had was it stopped the hair loss.
About 3-1/2 months ago I switched Docs & the new Doc (who's supposed to be a thyroid guru) said I was undertreated & started me on Armour, working from 60 up to 180 mg. I've been at 180 mg for a while now & in the last couple weeks my hair has started to fall out again!
I thought I might need to increase my dose again but my Doc thought the hair loss might have been from getting too much - I don't feel hyper at all (I have had hyper spurts with Hashis & I know what that feels like). I'm still tired & my heart does the slow thump thing... He's been having my take my basal temp too & that's been low too, in the hypo range. I went in for a sick call & wasn't expecting him to go over my thyroid stuff - but he did & he changed my July appt. to September now! He kept my dose the same or said I can split one of them & take 2-1/2.
I know it takes a while for med changes to have an effect on hair. Could switching meds 3-1/2 months ago have caused this? Do you guys think it will stop as my body gets used to Armour? I had such high hopes for this new treatment...
I was just starting to get my hair grown back and now here we go again!
