I am a guy and I have long thick curly hair. For the past two months I have been losing a lot of hair each time I comb it or shower so much that I have to pull it off the drain for the water to go down, hair loss does not run in my family. Also, my nails have been cracking down to the skin my finger nails have been warping and then they go back to normal on and off which I think might have something to do with the cracking. My doctor took some blood to test my thyroid and my stress hormones today. Could these be reasons why? Has anybody experienced anything similar that can give me some insight on these issues I am having?

Steph plz let us know what your results are. I was just diagnosed this week and I'm having hair & nail issues. I'm curious to know if it's linked to my diagnosis.
