Hair Loss


#1

Is hair loss a symptom of Parkinson's?

I'm losing a lot at the moment. My hairbrush is full each morning. I'm not on any meds as yet as I'm waiting for scan results.

Is this a symptom or just caused by stress?

Oh, I do hope it's NOT another PD symptom, I don't think I could cope with any more!

Stress can make you lose alarmingly large amounts of hair, as can antibiotics (and probably other meds too). Hormones are a common culprit, especially if you're female and middle-aged (apologies if you're a youngster!).

My 'parting' has grown wider over the last few years but I just put it down to this...........Grass doesn't grow on a busy street!!cool
