My 22 year old son who has had a full head of hair is almost literally bald. His doctor (endocrinologist) took tests and says that there is nothing wrong and they checked his blood and didn't seem to find anything wrong. He is under a lot of stress because he has been studying nonstop for 4 years straight but I don't think I should blame this hair-loss on stress. He also isn't only loosing hair on his head, his eye brows are almost all gone! He was such a handsome young man and now he is practically bald! My husband and I are going crazy. Can anyone help? Or refer us to anyone. Our location is troy,michigan.

Last year I lost a good bit of hair due to stress. Luckily, I had thick hair so it is only noticeable in certain spots. It is finally starting to grow back.

Is he losing his hair in spots? I have Alopecia Areata and have had it for over 50 years, most of my life. It has turned into Alopecia Universalis now, meaning over my whole body. I've now lost all my hair on my head, have no eyebrows, eyelashes or nose hair. I've been to doctors all my life and nobody ever really could tell me the cause. My last check with a dermatologist was a couple months ago and all he could tell me was that yes, it's an autoimmune disease. They don't know how or why and even if, the hair will ever grow back. Off and on all my life I'd have bald spots that I'd have to deal with, but the hair always grew back, with or without treatment. The hair has been gone now for about 3 years. Don't know if this helps, but at least it could be a place to start. Good luck.
