MS and hair loss (my experience)
I usually steer clear of my health issues because I don't want to be a "Debbie downer". But I suffer from MS and have for many years now. My experience with hair loss (although it is over now) started around the time I was diagnosed. I was having dandruff and cradle cap issues. And to make a really long sad story short after numerous of test I was diagnosed with MS. I was told that because of iron restriction due to my MS episodes, because it’s not a constant disease it is an "episode" disease in which symptoms occur every so often. And it’s an inflammatory disease that causes blood-flow restrictions (amongst other things I won't get into or list) which can interfere with hair growth, since hair follicles are just dead blood cells. I am not trying to scare you or alarm you, but if you are experiencing hair loss an iron deficiency may be a problem, or a disease that causes iron deficiency may be the problem. If you suddenly have a bald patch or even if one has been appearing gradually. Consult your physician or dermatologist A.S.A.P. Keep your glorious head of hair and get help with any health issues you may be experiencing.
