Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

I’ve experienced so very many changes in my hair as a result of living with multiple chronic medical conditions, including hair loss. Losing hair is incredibly difficult to go through.

Other hair changes have been due to medication side effects. Chemotherapy definitely resulted in significant hair loss, which was very traumatic. Taking Methotrexate, as well as Aubagio, caused my hair to fall out.

Some of these hair changes have been a direct reflection of a condition’s symptoms. For example, when my hypothyroidism has been uncontrolled, I’ve lost significant amounts of hair.

I’m currently again experiencing hair loss. I think that it’s due to a combination of factors: recent weight loss and medication changes.

Thankfully, my hair has always managed to grow back, after periods of hair loss. This is but one of many ways in which chronic illnesses have impacted my life.
