I second you having a blood test to check your thyroid. I would seriously clog up a drain every time I took a shower; my hair fell out non-stop. The first person to say it wasn’t normal was my hair stylist too, but they are NOT doctors. I had a blood test done and found my answer.

Do you have any other symptoms like fatigue, irregular periods, fuzzy thinking / confusion, panic attacks, weight gain, etc?  Even if you don’t have any of these symptoms, it wouldn’t harm you to have a physical and rule out hashimoto’s disease or hypothyroidism.

I second prenatal vitamins.  My doctor also recommended Biotin supplements as well.  It is one of the B vitamins.  I take meds that make my hair fall out and biotin really helps.  Double check with your doctor first but from what I understand it is a pretty bengin supplement.

Biotin is great for hair growth, but be careful about taking it alone as it can cause cystic acne. I would recommend a Hair, Skin, and Nails multi-vitamin. GNC has one.

I would also recommend getting checked out.

My mom is having this happen to her and her doctor said she isn’t getting enough protein in her diet.

I have never heard of pre-natals causing weight gain.  I’m pretty sure that is a myth .My guess is that people who are getting pregnant or pregnant are taking them- causing the weight gain 😉

They actually may help you loose weight if you are deficient in a key vitamin or mineral. I also don’t think they have any nutritional value ( like calories) so I would seriously doubt they would be a big weight gain source!
