does any of you panick sufferers lose hair and weight when your panick and stress levels are at there highest i have noticed when i take showers in the morning i am losing more hair than normal i am also losing wieght and have been really anxious just curious.
I go in and out of anxiety and one episode which lasted about 2 weeks caused me to lose about 10 lbs. I honestly had no appetite and couldn't sleep. Luckily I gained most of it back in the months following.
To Anxious Always. . . .
I have had panic and anxiety problems for quite a few years. I have lost a substantial amount of hair, (probably from the stress), also, my scalp itches like crazy. In the earlier years, I lost a lot of weight and a doc put me on Luvox & Tranxene. My weight came back up and I did pretty well for awhile. A few years later I seemed to have built up an immunity to the meds - or as I aged the problem got worse, and I needed a change of meds. I got so concerned I finally went to a psychiatrist. . .then the roller coaster began. I'm not saying all psychiatrist are bad - but he put me on several different meds that caused serious weight gain and I'm still dealing with it. I was never heavy in my life. I was always on the slender side, so I still don't really weigh all that much - but to me I feel like a balloon.
If you look under depression, I am on that board. Hope I've helped you to some degree.
You're not alone.

Hi, I'm suffering through the same thing. I'm 23 and ive lost about 15 pounds. Ive had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy done and found nothing. I'm losing so much hair, and feel so anxious because of it. People have said that it's parasites or just plain out anxiety. I just don't know, my doctors don't want to do more test because they think it's all in my head. Idk, I'm I crazy or I'm I right!!! I hate this.
