Hair loss
Oct 16, 2011
So, I'm about 90% sure I'm iron-deficient anaemic (still waiting on my test results, but I had VERY similar symptoms about a year ago due to iron-deficient anaemia, and a few months ago my doctor told me I could stop taking my iron pills...suspect he was wrong!). I have VERY low energy, pallour, pounding heart, out of breath easily, dizziness, poor mood, really cold hands & feet...and also what didn't happen before when I had anaemia, I seem to be shedding way more hair than usual. It doesn't look thin yet but I keep noticing hairs on my pillow, desk, clothes, in the shower drain...I'm really worried it's going to thin out because I am really vain about my hair.

I guess my question is, has anyone else had problems with hair loss with anaemia? Did it go away when your iron levels got better? Did you end up with a visible difference? I should probably be more concerned about how I could easily sleep 14 hours a night but I guess I am just a vain girl. D:
