No no. I remember I was so devastating that I asked an ray x but I had nothing. Everything came out perfect but I was having bone and muscles devasting
I had a cat scan but are MRIs cat scans etc even able to pickup drug damage though? Like if someone abuses meth certainly their brain won't function normal but do these machines pick it up? I think MRI does but i'm not confident in a lot of doctors ability to notice abnormalities

Not so easily... There's meta analysis of some things that display lower brain volume. Possibly drugs like AAP's and also things like ADHD and BP - but supposedly useless and not applicable to an individual. I.e. Just 100s or 1000s of people tested and in summary shows those changes. Not exactly sure why, but when I looked into this, it was like that. I think I was writing an essay for uni against misdiagnosis/ or psychiatric treatment... some class. Also interest.
-Also surely I asked my P.Doc (MD) and also my Psychologist (prof and a PhD Psyche). Surely they told me they have no idea... / hard to say individually.
-BC I wanted to get tested MRI's / cat scans etc in early 20s. I had other stuff going on and eventually forgot, till I needed a fam doc... but then didn't care/ felt fine eventually.
-Ill get tested tho later...
-I will ask em again. but they are FAR away. Maybe my friend here (fam doc) can refer me... but it's like wtf... now get a specialist... 15-18mo later... I dunno/ I'll see.

-ALTHOUGH @Helen did show me some interesting study re: POIS. If I have it saved here, will get it... otherwise may be in my notes on macbook... I'll look/ perhaps bookmarked it or wrote title down somewhere. Showed less volume with POIS and Helen said (a lot) of drugs do this. --no inhalers most this TEI run. Less than 10 x at this rate in 3months (only been 35 ish days tho so far, used em 3x).

What about a fast @Minime ? Fast followed by TEI. You’re health is in bad place I can just hear it from symptoms. Sometimes a fast might be the only thing that can make a big difference. Why not try 21 days of breuss or something?

Hi, man / I am so sorry that this happened to you. I dont think that hair is gone at all. it is just you are in the body chemistry now, which loses hair at the moment.


@Goose12 , also took Ella or RU between his cycles of TEI and he crashed and TEI pulled him out.

I think this is your best chance. Go on TEI and stay on it. I am 100% sure, within half a year you will have your hair back.


I think your cortisol receptor might have upregulated like crazy from RU. And also you have hashimoto.

I am so sorry I did not stop you in time of taking this garbage.


Please go on TEI and stick with it for a year. you will be all restored. and hair will grow back. It cant disappear just like that.


Ru is not in your system. but it could have effected your Cortisol receptor.
@Helen
Thanks for the response man. I hope you’re right that my hair isn’t gone for good. I spent a ton of money on labs and am waiting for the results so I’ll share them when they come in.

If all RU did was mess up my cortisol receptor then maybe there is hope for me. But I read RU destroys the hair follicle bulge and I’m thinking that’s what happened to me.

It’s not just the hair loss. My scalp is a mega-producer of dandruff. It is absolutely incredible how much develops each day. And it’s getting worse. Significantly worse.

I could try TEI but first I’m going to see what these labs show and see what the doc has to say.

Thanks again for advice. It is greatly appreciated.

If you cant afford it or cant do it, try urine therapy. It is growing my hair back nicely from finasteride use. I had the same situation like you, I took finasteride and hair just started to go like crazy, I lost like 70% of it.

One glass of urine in the morning. It is very good to restore the body when some receptor got upregulated or downregulated , especially if this is a new situation
@Helen
This sounds like a joke...but I know it’s not. I will look into it. I’ll search for your discussion thread and read up on it. Thanks!

Yo dude try to keep your head up in this situation. You sound like you are handling the situation well. Try out TEI or the urine like Helen says. I think this is best chance of becoming healthy and going back to a good baseline.

Did you shave your head yet? If not I would highly recommend it. Especially if it looks like dogshit right now. It will give you break from seeing your shit hair. And often people look fine with shaved head. Even if your head is not perfect shape.

Good luck man.
@RebelWithACause
Thanks for your response RWAC. I have not shaven my head yet, but that’s not far away. I’m just so nervous to do so because I have a very lumpy head. Of course, the thin comb-over isn’t looking good either...and it’s just too thin to cover much of anything.

The dandruff/scaly head is also very bad. Horrible actually. Trying to treat it but it just gets worse every day. So frustrating.

@bruschi11
I’ve thought about doing a fast but I don’t think I can do that with the shape my body is in right now, and because of my very busy work schedule.

I’ve incurred muscle wasting as a result of all this and I think I’m just too skinny to fast right now. I’m not excluding it as a possibility though. I’ll see how my labs come back and go from there.

Actually I just realized you suggested a breuss fast. Maybe that’s the way to go. I’ll consider it.

Thanks for your response!

Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve been on this board. To tell the truth, I’ve been in a bad depression. Really bad. The dermatologist gave me a shampoo to use and I didn’t check the ingredients. After using the shampoo for two days, I crashed...PFS style. Turns out the shampoo had saw palmetto in it. I’m pretty sure that’s what caused my crash.

The crash has been bad. All the problems I had below the belt have worsened. Mind doesn’t work right. Motivation is complete garbage. Depression is significant with worse-case-scenarios going through my mind nonstop.

I spent a crazy amount of money to get lab work done. Virtually everything came back normal. Doc is treating me for some methylation issues and will later treat neurotransmitter concerns, but neither of these are significant.

Anyway, aside from the crash, not much has changed for me. Weight loss from the crash is significant, particularly the loss of muscle. I’ve lost most of my hair after taking RU. My scalp is a mess, with sores, dandruff, etc. The doc now has me on an anti-fungal medicine as they are totally baffled as to what is happening with my scalp since I took RU. My scalp is an itchy sore-ridden mess. I just don’t understand it. They’re hoping it’s some sort of fungus and the medicine will help. If it doesn’t solve the problem, they’re not sure what to do next.

I’m glad to be back online. It will take me a while to get caught up on the hundreds of posts I’ve missed the last couple months. If anyone can let me know of any significant breakthroughs or specific threads I should read, I would appreciate it.

I think about you all often and am so thankful this community exists. Happy New Year to all of you. Hoping 2019 is a breakout year for all of us.

Cheers

It could indeed be a fungus related hair loss. RU could have increased DHT in your scalp, increasing sebum that feeds a fungus called Malassezia, which is the cause of seborrheic dermatitis. If you have both dandruff and an itchy scalp, that's likely.

Do you notice an increase in itchiness, dandruff after eating a special type of food?
Try the usual Anti dermatitis shampoo such as Zinc Pyrithione, Clobimzole, Piroctone Olamine etc. If it's a fungus, you should notice improvement almost immediately after the shampoo, report back

Everyone's almost recommending TEI and Cdnuts protocol nowadays. With a bit of trial with hormones going on as well. Jump on one of these protocols, no need to waste any time anymore

Since you have been on accutane you need to deplete vitamin A(accutane) from your liver and tissues. Accutane rounds are massive amounts of pure vitamin A, it gets stored in fat, liver, everywhere since it is an overdose. Short or long water fasting, liver flushes, full body sun exposure, and eating a zero vitamin A diet is key, you will not get healthly until you address this. Beyond this getting on TEI to sort out mineral deficiencies will get you back on track after taking care of vitamin A toxcity.

Tough times don't last, tough people do. You can get out of this man, don't dread too much. Listen to @Orion please, just follow that guy. I know you've been in a downward spiral but you can fix it all pretty quickly. Have you fasted for a long time yet? Like 15-20+ days? I just feel like some people literally require this to get better with these freakin chemicals that went into our body's.

While yea- finasteride, Accutane, saw palm have f'd you up. There's a reason why you got affected so much worse and were so sensitive to the compounds. While you many not know what is internally wrong with you beyond the chemical distruptors, your body will know whats wrong and do its best in a fast state. The body is truly incredible man- it can pull you out of this. Sure its a fasted state and it sucks while you're doing it (at first, but you'll eventually get immune to it), but the capabilities of this rather short time period are just too large to not chance in states like you are in.

Best of luck man, hang in there. All I recommend is fasting, flushing at this point. You can save your life man, just believe in it and anything is possible.

@vicecaz Very interesting...thanks for the response as I have not heard of Malassezia. I wonder if I can get tested for that(?) The doc gave me an oral anti-fungal medication for the next two weeks. He asked me to use a very gentle shampoo for now, so I’m not using an anti dermatitis shampoo at the moment.
It’s not just dandruff and itching, but also sores all over my scalp. These sores are now spreading to my face as well. Similar to acne.
My plan is to go through with the protocol my doc wants me to complete, then assess from there. Maybe TEI after that, not sure.

@Orion Thanks for the advice. I have not looked into Accutane toxicity in depth but I recall reading that Accutane is a synthetic form of vitamin A and it does not get absorbed by the liver like pure vitamin A. It seems like the body would have rid itself of it by now as it was a very long time ago that I took Accutane. Still, I have a feeling that you’re correct and I’m going to need to detox at some point.
I’ve done very short-term fasts (4 days or less) but no long-term fasts. I don’t see long term fasts as an option anytime soon given my work schedule. But at some point I would like to do a long fast.
I’ve never done a liver flush because the whole idea scares me and makes me very nervous.
I will look into avoiding vitamin A in my diet. Is there a toxicity test I can take to see if I have an issue?

@bruschi11 I have not done a long term fast yet. A few short term fasts but I didn’t see any benefits. Deep down I think you and Orion are right and I need to perform a long term fast. I just need to find a time period when I can actually do it and still go to work every day. Is that even possible? Maybe a Breuss fast...but would that provide the same benefits as a regular fast?
Yes, I am definitely in a downward spiral. To look back at where I was a year ago, five years ago, and prior to that, I am so much more worse off now. Just so disappointing. Still, like you said, tough times don’t last, tough people do. Hopefully I can turn a corner at some point. One thing’s for sure, I don’t feel tough. I’m very skinny due to the muscle wasting over the years. Nothing anabolic or androgenic works in my body anymore. Very sad.
Thanks for your encouragement.

I think that duration of fasting is key. For autophagy. I did multiple shorter ones, and fairly long juice fasts, only major progress after I really committed to a longer one.
ALSO, countless stories I'm sure of people fasting a bit... and still being sick. Like a story I read on Medium (posted months ago on here).
"Suffering" weeks to a month or so, is NOTHING compared to suffering 9mo - 2yrs, 10 -20 yrs with PFS.

@MNK99 I agree with your comment regarding suffering for the short term is nothing compared to PFS. And at some point I will carve out time to do a fast. I’m skeptical on the benefits though. I could be wrong, but I don’t think anyone has reversed shrinkage by fasting. Still, it’s probably just a necessary step in the healing process. I will need to read up on it so I know how to fast correctly. I believe there is a thread on this site somewhere...
