Thanks for posting your query.
Your symptoms could be due to varied causes like low blood pressure, hormonal imbalance ( thyroid disorder etc), nutritional deficiency , Hematologic disorder( malignancies,bleeding disorders or other blood dyscrasias) or a chronic infection like tuberculosis ( loss of appetite and weight loss.
Now to confirm the cause and severity of the problem it's very important to get yourself thoroughly examined by your doctor ( blood pressure , signs of nutritional deficiency or bleeding tendencies etc) & if needed a baseline investigation ( blood counts , ESR , thyroid profile etc) should be done.
This will help in confirming the diagnosis according to which further steps of treatment can be taken.
Yes , you do seem to be underweight but not malnourished . I assume your loss of weight and appetite are recent complaints ( less than a couple of months ) which could itself give rise to dizziness , headaches etc It would be wise not to neglect these symptoms any further and consult your doctor for a thorough evaluation and management .
Meanwhile you should try to avoid stress, caffeine and alcoholic beverages , and prolonged fasting to decrease your symptoms. Drink plenty of fluids to improve hydration which will help in decreasing dizziness too. Eat small frequent meals XXXXXXX in fruits (especially citrus fruits XXXXXXX in vitamin c )& vegetables . Your doctor might prescribe a daily multivitamin and calcium supplement if required.
Yoga or breathing exercises can be very helpful in the long run.

Hope I have answered your query.

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
