  • Do you have any other symptoms?Are you taking any medications?How old are you?Have you recently been out of the country?Have you had any exposure to chemicals or heavy metals?By answering these questions you'll make it a lot easier for someone to theorize on possible diagnosis'.

  • Have you checked into alopecia? It's a condition where the immune system attacks the hair follicles causing hair loss. Here's a link http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/a/alopecia/intro.htm

Get your iron checked. even if your hemoglobin is normal the ferritin can be low. This will cause hair loss. To have normal hair and nails the level needs to be 60 or over. good luck
