I am 40years old. I am a mom of 3 children my youngest being 3 years old. I have experienced excessive hair loss to the point of not being able to wear black. I know it's normal to lose hair daily but if I even touch my hair 10-20 fall out. My pillow is covered in the am and when I wash it it falls out by the handful. It's from the root. Thank goodness I have thick hair. I am cold a lot of the time but not always. My skin is dry. I have had depression and little patience lately. I really do not lead a stressful life. I am a few pounds overweight. The most concerning is my memory. I am forgetting simple steps in every day tasks. I feel as if I've lost my mind and embarrassed of my lack of recall. Things I should know I cannot remember when asked. My mother died of a brain tumor and am beginning to fear I might have one. I do not wish to overreact. I have a physical next week with my MD but lab tests in past always come back normal such as thyroid, cbc and cmp. I expect the same this time. I appreciate any advice you can share with me. Also as far as reproductive health my periods have always been heavy. I now experience breast tenderness a week prior which I did not before and I'm emotional that week before. They are closer together than they used to be and my gyn just says that comes with getting older.
