    Default Severe hairfall for past 2 years. How should I treat this? Any inputs?

    Hi all,
    I have severe hairfall for past 2 years. It started after I move to a new country.
    I moved to the US 2 years back from another country. I had a very long thick hair. Had a huge volume of hair.
    After I move to US,I started seeing my hair falling out and thinning gradually from March 2017. I thought it will go off on its own. But it didn't.
    Then I visited few doctors. I went to my PCP,OBGYN. They did a few blood work and said all the blood work looks normal and it will go off on it's own.
    But nothing changed. I see a lot of hair falling off everyday. So, I visited a dermatologist recently( Dec 2018). She did few blood work and said everything is normal except my vitamin D. My vitamin D is very low and the value is 12.1.
    She didn't mention the reason for my hairfall and prescribed me Minoxidil 5%oil. I am applying that everyday. It's been 2 months, I don't see any difference in my hairfall. Its still the same.
    I am taking vitamin D3 supplements now to increase my vitamin D level.
    Apart from that,I really don't know what's the reason for my hairfall? I almost lost 60 to 70 percent of my hair now. I usually see more hair falling off in the morning after I wake up. If I need to run through my fingers, i can see lots and lots of hair coming off. Also, during shower,combing and through out the day. I can see lots of hair in my floor everyday.
    I don't know what to do and how should I treat this? What could be the reason for this? I am so worried about this everyday. Getting upset by seeing my hair going very thin. I don't want to go bald.

    Anyone please share your inputs. Any input is really appreciated.
    Thank you.
