Hair

These are descriptions of how individuals experienced various symptoms during withdrawal. While everyone's withdrawal is unique and symptoms will be different for everyone, it may be useful to know what others went through.

All withdrawal symptoms can be caused by things in addition to withdrawal. If a symptom is persistent or you are worried by it, it is always a good idea to get it checked out by your doctor to ensure nothing else is going on.

What I've Felt:

"I've felt like my body has been shedding unnecessary hair in an effort to marshal its defences for more important battles. I've lost the most hair from my chest, armpits, and pubic areas. In addition, the hair on my head has been going white much more rapidly than before. Not grey, white. I'm not sure what color it will be by the time this is over." - Matt

What I've Felt :

"My hair just continues to get thinner and thinner. I do see some stray babies here and there. Nothing that looks promising though. This really has done a job of my self esteem and I am trying to learn to love and accept myself as I am. Body hair is slow to grow too." - Sandy's six month update
