I have hair loss but it's d/t my thyroid. I have to growths found by accident when I had a CT scan.
But notice increase hair loss with the valtrex.
Started taking a prenatal vitamin to help combat the hair loss and it has seems to help.
Can I bring this thread back from the dead to see if any of the original posters found any resolution to their hair loss?
I was diagnosed with HSV 2 in June of 2015 & started taking suppresive Valtex immediately. I took it for about 4 months but had to stop cause I noticed a tremendous amount of hair loss.
I have been off of it now for over 4 months but I'm still losing hair.I have an almost completely bald temple area now!
I am doing lots of research and I am pretty certain that I have some kind of thyroid issue. I visited my GP this week but she was not very helpful to say the least.
I now am looking into finding either an endocrinologist or a holistic doctor who has specialized training in the thyroid.
I just find it odd that the hair loss got much worse when I started the Valtrex.
Sooo.....any of you original posters still around?
Do any of you have thyroid issues?
Hey HH, marriage is different things to different generations. I've learned so much over these past 30 yrs. My husband and I are both old fashioned in our own ways. I expect people for their character and who they are, he feels everyone should act a certain way all the time. He courted me and our first date after he proposed, he had a single red rose and a very ugly tie, I knew he was mine forever!
You don't have to conform to live happily ever after, make your life, whether good or bad, work for you. Some of our best memories are when I was physically sickest. Just knowing that person is the buffer between you and death is the most fulfilled you can ever experience.. I know he would do for me what I would do for him, we are NOT conforming to what others think is correct, we practice what we spoke and I thank God everyday for giving him to me and our daughter.
I'm NOT telling you to leave her, that can only be your choice. I am however telling you to be selfish and think of your needs first. It's easy for someone to tell you how to handle a situation when they don't walk in your shoes. I've lived some of your experience and I chose to be selfish, I'm happy I did. Karma did find him, he's passed and God doesn't make mistakes. Hugs Truly Aces xo
Maby just oral then and thr pain down there i get could be a coincidental skin problem. Surely in the 2 years ive been with my gf also id of had something change or appear but i havent. I dont know how to think about jt but all i can do is retest somewhere else to get an idea. Wouldnt want to ever put anyone else at risk in life, cause i know how mentally draining all this is.
