What causes severe hair loss and fatigue?

I am only 20 years old and this past 2 months my hair has started falling out in handfuls And my body has been really weak and my teeth have been feeling weak and sore also.
I know it sounds weird I just need some possibilities I go to the doctor Monday.

I would try to give you some common diseases that need to be ruled out in these cases. First of all anemia may cause hair loss and weakness and the second most common cause is the under or the over function of the thyroid gland.
These are the first problems that your doctor must check.
Thank you for your question, hope the information was useful.
