When does your hair grow back?

This is my first post. I began losing my hair six mos. ago. I thought it was just an age thing. I became alarmed because it's really falling out. I saw my GP and she suggested a thyroid test. It came back as hyperthyroidism (.01). YIKES! I saw an Endo this morning and he "thinks" I have Graves disease, but won't start me on medication until the I123 test results are known. Earliest date for that test is 10/1 and then another week to get the results. I don't have alot of the other symptoms, but now that I think about it, I am more fatigued and hungry. I haven't lost or gained weight. Has anyone else had extreme hair loss? Does it stop falling out when you start taking medication?
