Hair Loss

Has anyone experienced hair loss as a result of having fibro?

I've just got over a bout with alopecia arietta
Myfirst time was before I was diagnosed with
FM but had the symptoms. This time I had
cortisone injections to the bald scalp. It
started with lots of hair coming out but directed itself to top right front crown. It was
definitly a sad case to go through. I swear if
it happens again I'm shaving my head and
getting wigs.

Not because of the fibro but some antdepressants that I have been on over the years caused my hair to thin.

Thank you for responding. My doctor doesn't think that the hair loss has anything to do w/fibro...she referred me to a dermatologist who said he couldn't do anything for me, but prescribed minoxidil (but if I stop using it, it will fall out again). I think it's related to fibro..

I would love to blame the fibro, some of it I blame on My Dad, he has mean Genes that he gave me, but I have noticed that my hair is thinner since my fibro kicked back in, I had another auto accident and was in near remission, but have every symptom in the book and a few extra, thinning hair is one, I was thinking it might be low iron or something, I have a hard time eating meat, and my vitamins are not helping with my hair. I am threatening to spend a fortune on hats, but not red and purple ones. lol
