Post Does anyone know if hair will recover/grow in again?

This morning I went to the store early, just put a hat on. I saw myself in a mirror at the store and both of my ears were sticking out through my hair, or Lack of hair. My ears are normal size and do not overly stick out. I am now taking increased meds and am feeling better, much better, but want to know if anyone has had their hair came back after being stabilized?

Mine started growing back almost immediately after they switched me to a T3/T4 med. Even my eyebrows and unfortunately armpit hair and legs(which were almost none existant). Oh well, good with the bad. LOL IWL

research shows most hairgrowth will return after thyroid is stabilized

My hair grew back thick and lustrous, plus it grew so darned fast that I had to get it trimmed way too often. My toenails and fingernails also grow like weeds now.

Ditto Marilyn's post. Exactly the same with nails too after getting adjusted on thyroid meds.
