What's happening with me

.
The night of February 11th I decided I was going to dye my hair red. I took the dye I always use which is designed for bad hair like mine and set to work, I worked out that I needed to remove the clour I already had on which I did. That night when I was washing my hair I began to notice there was a lot of hair at the bottom of the bath tub, I thought this was strange because my hair has never come out like this before. I pulled the hair out thinking it wasn't probably just mine only to be horrified to see that it was in fact my hair that had clumped up in the water, I got out wrapping a towel around my hair and letting the water out. I didn't think much of my hair falling out because I just thought it would have been the dye. To my own horror though there was so much hair in the bottom of the bath I could have made a wig for an old man. I picked up the hair calmly and began going down to see my mum.
I sat in the kitchen having a huge panic attack whilst more hair began to fall down my back and onto my lap. I hadn't even touched my hair when we started to notice a bald patch starting to form at the front of my head. I was told not to touch it and go to bed t try and relax.
I woke up the next morning to my pillow covered in my hair, I had two major bald patches starting to form as well as hair that just kept falling out without contact. I went to see my doctor who made me have bloods.

I have a thyroid gland condition. Nw if you don't know what the thyroid is don't worry neither did I, looking into it I started reading about what it was and what it actually does for my body. It's basically an organ that is in your neck that stores, realease and produces hormones t send out int your body. The two main hormones it produces are
Triiodyrone (T3)
Thyroxtine (T4)

Too much T3 & T4 causes Anxiety, irritability and moodiness nervousness and hyperactivity, sweating and being sensitive to high temperatures, shakiness and hair loss

Too Little T3 & T4 causes trouble sleeping, tiredness, difficulty concentrating, dry skin and hair, depression, sensitive to cold temperatures, muscle and joint pain as well as a heavy menstrual cycle

Now I have both too little and too much which is impossible for my doctor to believe.

Borderline Must be horrible, I am loosing my hair a lot too but my doctor said it was normal. Do you have a healthy diet? Maybe it can help as well with the thyroid condition.

ScaryGal @Borderline I'm a genuinely healthy person, I eat all the right foods and only eat junk once or twice a week. I get my five a day and I'm always drinking a lot of water. I'm sorry to hear you're losing your hair as well.

Borderline is okay no worries, I am a man on the 20's so is normal. So keep visiting the doctor as often as you can and follow strictly the instructions given by him/her in order to make your life better.
