Hi Kythe, I haven't heard that hair loss is associated w/ FMS. There are reports that thyroid problems can cause hair loss. My pat G'ma and pat aunt both had thyroid removed and had lots of health issues but both had thick hair. My hair is thick and about shoulder length and white. It started going gray when I was about 11 or 12. In my early 20's I started to color it, did that into my 40's. I decided to frost my hair to start bringing it down. As I looked at the results, I realized my hair was white. Not gray streaks in my hair, but white. I thought about coloring it again, then thought, why bother. My understanding is that the thyroid can cause your hair to turn white. I'm concerned about the possibility of cancer w/ the dyes, and cancer is a big threat in my family. So I will just keep the white.
You might want to ck w/ your dr. re your thyroid, just in case. God bless. Alice.
