    Default Paranoia or something real?

    I've had an off and on fear of my hair falling out for a few years now.
    It got so bad at one point that I cut my hair, once halfway down my ass, to what I believe was a number 7 or 6 just to see.

    I've been letting it grow back out and everything seems ok, except every so often I get glimpses of my scalp while in the bathroom.

    To be fair my roots are decently light and the lighting in our bathroom is fairly harsh, four of those big globe bulbs, and it doesn't really look like it is an issue in other places.

    So I am sorry if I am fine, but this bothers me more than I care to admit and is a massive hit to my confidence.



    Opinions?

    It does look like androgenic alopecia. See a doctor, rule out other causes....do not get your hopes up for another cause though. 90+ % chance it is just genetic hair loss. If so, start meds

    This.

    Expect the worst. Hope for the best. It's probably MPB though, brah. Don't delay treatment any longer.

    Not to make you even more paranoid, but there is definitely thinning going on the top of your head. Don't waste time being in denial.

    Well I mean knowing something is wrong is better than wondering.
    The only issue now is that I am broke and have no way to see a doctor.

    Not meant in a harsh way, but I think you know the answer.
    I think you need to come to terms with the fact that you are actually becoming bald.

    It's fine, now it's just a matter of seeing if there is something I can do to stop it or biting the bullet and just removing what I have.

    Tto, just keep in mind that the battle isn't lost. Obviously you care about your hair. Do what you can to try to keep it. Who knows, you may even be able to grow a good amount back. Now I want to make it clear I am not discouraging you from seeing a doctor, but in my case I really didn't have to. I went to my doctor for a regular check up and just asked him to write me a script for fin. I didn't take any hormone tests or anything. I haven't even been back to the doctor for a follow up.

    I understand being strapped for cash, but treatments aren't very expensive. I pay less than $5/month for minoxidil. Finasteride, if bought online will run you about .25 a day. You can treat your hair loss for about $12 a month. If you own a computer and have internet access, you can afford $12/month.

    Fair enough, that's actually a lot cheaper than I thought.
    And the good news is a job just called and woke me up, so there may be hope after all.

    Now, I keep seeing things about laser combs, I assume these things are bunk?
