Re: hair loss and weight loss/anxiety
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.
