    Default Very scared, can pull hair out in large numbers.

    Ok I just woke up and now I'm freaking out. I've had pretty steady and semi rapid hair loss at my hairline since about October, id say i lost about an inch on each side, maybe a little less. But I had never had much shedding just miniaturization and strangulation of my hair. But this morning when i woke up there was little hairs on my pillow and when i scratched my head some hairs fell out. Curious i gave a little pull on some hairs and a whole bunch came out, like I'm talking about 10 or so, this happened again next time i tried. I was drinking last night and fell and hit my head enough to have a scab this morning, I want to think that's why but the hairs on the other side come out too, not as many only like 6-8 but I'm still kinda having a mini panic attack as to what's going on, too afraid to shower I don't want to see what falls out.

    I was supposed to get the results of my bloodwork back and get on propecia tomorrow too(so long as i kept my resolve) but this has me freaking out.

    I'm also noticing that some of the hairs have this thing almost clear white coating near the end and a small black bulb. I've never seen this before and its really not adding to my sense of ease.

    If your hair is coming out ridiculously easily then see your doctor.

    My hair if I pull at it will every single time have a fair few hairs come out. Thats hairloss for you, your hair is weak, your hair follicles are week, they come out easily if you pull at them.

    Just try not to pull at them!

    When I started losing my hair I got really frustrated and started yanking at my hair in anger for some reason, god knows why, I guess I just thought why the **** does this have to happen to me, my lifes ****ed! so I thought pulling it out wudn't change anything.

    The thing is once you pull that hair out it may not come back. I pulled some hairs out from the sides of my head where hairs that should not get affected by DHT are and they did not grow back so I have thin patches.

    Hi there CR779,
    Would recommend you to go see a doctor specializing in hairloss and have him take a look at your hair. How old are you? Do you have any other sign of hairloss than the hair that is left in the shower, towel or pillow after sleeping. Any adult male loose 100 hairs or more per day, and it is normal.

    If you yank your hair some will go - no reason to do that, normally though these hairs will return unless they were in their last cycle and you would have lost them anyway within some months.

    Hairloss is a serious thing and happens to most men at some point. See a specialist but do not freak out and take you time before doing anything.

    Good luck it is probably nothing.

    Thanks to everyone in this thread. A few days have gone by now and it's back to normal it was just the scabs on my head from the fall I took the night before. Although the area around my whorl is now larger do to the hairs that fell out around the scab there. Hope to god they grow back as i don't have any issues on my vertex, just the hairline right now.

    I think we all freak out a little whenever we see more hair fall out than normal.
