Hi there Amber,
Welcome!!! You mentioned hair loss and my eyes (ears) perked up. I was thinking of running a thread on that today! I can't go anywhere in my house w/o finding my hair all over the place. I'd blame hubby for it but that guy's hair just keep getting thicker, so its me!! Fortunatly I don't have any bald spots (yet).
This is an awesome group of friends.. we think of eachother as family. I've learned so much since I've been hanging around. Everyone truly cares about us.
I'm always amazed how long many of us go without a dx. I have been battling this syndrome most of my adult life, but didn't get a dx till just a few weeks ago, though I've been basically treated for it years.. I didn't have the official dx till then. I'm on new meds now and they really are helping. I'm not nor ever have been on oxy. Hope I never need it.
Anyway, welcome!! And warm hugs!!
