Hair Loss oh my! Mine has actually slowed down since I start on Plaquenil and pednazone. I thought it was thyroid, which I don't have. Now I can also blame SLE. Don't let it bother you. Mine has always been cyclic.
Enjoy Life to the best of your ability; it helps.
I had one really severe bout of hair loss and that was right before I got diagnosed with Lupus. The hair eventually came back in, but it came back in curly. I guess it was the steroids that made the hair loss stop, but not to sure. Hang in there. Your hair will return.
I too experienced hair loss in the early stages of my disease, this was about 13 years ago...
I believe it was the cellcept as well, started thinning then just came out in lumps, but grew back normally after the meds were stopped :)
Also I agree with saysusie, It does depend on what is causing the hair loss.
dont you still take medications though?

Sorry to hear about your hair loss...I too went through a period where I had extreme hair loss. It is thin and long now. I gotta tell ya that hats and I have a few wigs I dare wear at night now until I am off of prednisone per my doctor. Hopefully you will find a solution and your hair will grow back and be full again. I know I can't wait. Strangley hair grows like wild flowers everywhere but my head!
