I have sustained 3 fractures in my right foot (all in different places) in the past 4 months. I am currently in yet another cast to heal the current break and my doctor will be doing tests (such as bone density) in ten days time. In the last 2 weeks I have had dreadful skin outbreaks almost like acne, and my hair has been falling out. I am not seeing bald patches or anything, but when I comb my hair (VERY gently and as little as possible) handfuls of hair come out - this is not normal for me. I have a handful of other minor things and taken individually none of it (bar the broken bones) would worry me. Having it all at once has made me a little nervous. What should I ask my doctor to check for? I am 41 years old, have 4 sons (youngest is 11 years), and have up to now enjoyed good health. Many thanks for your help.
