I'm losing my hair

I started to notice recently that my hair seemed to be much finer and thinner lately, and today I realized that I have small bald patches all over my scalp!!! Its actually falling out!

Has anyone experienced this with Lyme, im freaking out. Will it ever come back?

Have you had your thyroid checked? Many people with Lyme also develop Hypothyroidism and this can lead to thinning hair, eyelashes, eyebrows.

Re: I'm losing my hair

Are you on any type of treatment currently? I know that when I was on IV abx, my hair fell out in clumps and after my treatment was over, my hair came back in super CURLY!! My Lyme Doc didn't have any explanation for it.

I agree you should get your thyroid checked as well. Lyme wreaked havoc on mine before I received treatment.

Good luck!

How do you know when you are really done treatment and how do you know if the thinning of hair is from Lyme?
