Hi, for the past 7 years I have had these symptoms:

Hair falling out (not in clumps but in strands and it's quite a lot but no bald spots)
Dark circles around eyes (dark rings around eyes, top and bottom of eye)
Verticle lines on nails
Pale Skin
Loss of colour in cheeks (i use to have rosey cheeks)

I'm not stressed in any way, so that's not what's causing the hair loss and I've also been tested for vitamin deficiencies and was low in iron (because of heavy menstrual cycle) and low in a few other vitamins and was told to take iron, zinc and multi-vitamin tablets for 6 months, which I did, and went back for a test and my vitamin levels were back to normal but none of these symptoms had gone away. :eek:

Would I maybe have to get a full vitamin/mineral testing for every type of deficiency?
If anyone has any ideas as to what tests I could ask for it would be much appreciated, and if anyone knows why I could have these symptoms please let me know. Thank you! :)
