Lastly I would like to know if your periods are regular and normal?
were on to normal till 2 months back, but always experience heavy flow on 1st day & negligible till 4th day
but last month it was delayed & was after 45 days
Let me brief you now.
also skin is very sensitive
get pimples / acne in summer
Hair just like any part of the body has its own life cycle and hair falling is normal part of hair cycle.
We do not consider hair fall as a serious problem if the number of hair lost is not more than 100 and if there are no bald patches/hair line regression.
Therefore what you have - hair fall while bathing and oiling is normal.
However the can be factors such as dandruff, inadequate nutrition and dry hair causing split hair ends, dry hair and noticable hair fall.
hair has become very thin
I suggest you to eat a healthy diet containing of plenty of fruits and vegetables, take tab. biotin once a day for 2-3 months and oil your hair frequently with plain cocunut oils or any other natural oils of your choice.
In addition, sleep regularly and maintain your stress levels normally - by physical exercise, engaging in normal family and friend circle, yoga and meditation.
nd yes ... from front m experiencing that hair is becoming less & forehead increasing
You can also improve dandruff issues by use of good antidandruff shampoos such as Nizoral or 8x shampoo.
but it dries the hair more
Oiling the hair before shampooing and using a good hair conditioner to keep the hair moisturized will prevent hair drying.
Actually stress level is also bit high
All these changes together are known to treat hair fall and hair dryness issue.
so what exactly must b done
nd how about weakness?
You need to incorporate all these - diet and nutrition, biotin supplements (tab. Biotin or biotin forte), managing stress with physical exercise and good sleep, regular oiling and treating dandruff issues (if any).
Biotin wud not have any sideeffects na
coz my body is sensitive to tablets
Since you also mention that your skin is dry and you had some menstrual irregularities, you can also get your thyroid functions checked with simple blood tests.
done at a nearby laboratory.
Biotin is nutritional supplement with no serious side effects.
It will not cause any harmful problems.
Weakness and fatigue can be related to stress factors, inadequate nutrition/fluids and with some medical conditions such as anemia, thyroid problems and sugar levels.
Treating any abnormalities will improve the weakness and hair fall issues.
The pain in your hand and difficult to grip normally can be related to your job.
People who are involved in computer/typing related issues can have such problems due to frequent typing.
any particular food which wud help instantly for weakness'
If the pain is severe or if the weakness is very noticable, you should consider consulting a doctor and get your nerves checked.
If you meant weakness of the hands, then food does not seem to have any relation. Proper work ergonomics while working on computer / typing would be essential.
weakness is through out the body, but more on hands
Most of your complaints may be related to your stress levels, improper work ergonomics and or the medical conditions that I described.
Without an opportunity to physically examine you, I am unable to pinpoint which of these factors could be the most likely causes.
Therefore I suggest you to get those test done.
You can also consider visiting a general physician and get yourself checked to look for physical clues.
Physical signs can provide more confirmatory findings to determine the cause and its treatment.
While you plan your physician visit and investigation, you should incorporate the diet changes, stress management and biotin supplement as I explained earlier.
You will be able to find some solution based on my suggestions.
