From this study (2 days ago):
I have had severe loss/thinning of hair over this last year, and it seems to be getting worse over the last 6 months. I lose an inordinate amount of hair whenever I brush, comb, or shampoo my hair.
From this study (2 days ago):
I've been in three hosptals in the last year and a half. That doesn't seem to help as the last visit I was not informed at all and neither was my family. And to top it off, instead of trying to get well, I was manhandled from one of the staff members..
From this study (2 days ago):
All lesions necrosis
I live in chronic pain and fatigue
