I am a 33 year old female. About a year ago I was diagnosed with Cold Agglutinin, where my hands would be painful and fingers would swell. Then I was diagnosed with erosive esophagitis a few months after that. So I quit smoking and started running instead. I lost about 20 pounds over a year. I started to eat very healthy. I am 5ft 8 in. I now weigh 134lbs. I just got diagnosed with Winkebachs heart block. My hair has been falling out for the past 5 months, and my periods are irregular. I eat about 2500 calories a day to maintain my weight. I run 5 miles 4 days a week and lift weights 2 days a week. My docs are stumped. I upped my protein and iron in hopes of stopping the hair loss. I have had labs for lupus, lyme disease, amyloiosis, and an endocrine workup. Everything is normal. I want my hair to stop falling out and I don't want a pacemaker. My heartblock seems to bother me more but I am not passing out, just lightheaded. Can anyone help?
