I’ve noticed my hair thinning at the center of the top of my scalp?

Hello. I have an appointment to see a dermatologist in two weeks to look at my scalp, as my hair is shedding more than normal and I’ve noticed it thinning at the center of the top of my scalp. But the wait to find out is killing me.

Three months ago, I went through probably the hardest breakup of my life, leaving me depressed, heartbroken and frustrated for several weeks while heading into finals at school (I am 26 years old, by the way).

Since that breakup, I started dieting and working out heavily and lost 40 pounds in the last three months. Two months ago, I was forced to move out of my apartment into a new house at the same time I had just booked a vacation trip, costing me roughly $2,500 all at once, so that was beyond stressful. And I have had a bit of anxiety working full time with another semester on the horizon, while being offered a coaching job on top of that. So I have stressed about where I will find the time for all that. I have also had sleep paralysis twice in the past few weeks, but I’m not sure if that is related or not.

My father and his father both suffered from different patterns of permanent hair loss, while the grandfather on my mother’s side still to this day has a full head of hair. My primary care physician took a brief look and said he believes the hair will grow back and that it might be telogen effluvium due to the weight loss and/or extreme stress levels, as my blood work and thyroid tests came back very clean. Also, the hair that falls out all has a little white bulb on the end that was in the scalp.

I noticed my hair shedding more than usual about 1.5 months ago. What are the chances this could just be telogen effluvium and not permanent hair loss/male pattern baldness? And if it is telogen effluvium or some other form of temporary hair loss, what should I expect moving forward? Thank you for taking your time to read/reply. It is greatly appreciated.

I have breast pain, pressure on ovaries, hair loss, tired – need second opinion?

Hello,
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for the last 4 months. The last 2-3 months I have had breast pain (mostly on my right breast but some on the left, feeling more deep in the tissue and closer to the side of my breast). I have also had dull pressure on my ovaries that comes and goes; mostly on the right but some on the left. I went to the gynecologist recently and she did an exam of both without any concern. I currently take a prenatal about two months ago started taking an iron supplement and fish oil supplement. I have also noticed increased hair loss and I have always been one who is always tired (I am not pregnant)???
