Can DHE cause hair loss and shrieking sounds? My daughter received DHE IV treatment for three days. She left the hospital very weak. Over the next few weeks, her hair began to thin and she began making an uncontrollable shrieking noise. It has now been one year since the treatment. She has very slowly regained some of her strength and her hair has grown back but the shrieking noise remains. She is currently 15 years old and is still suffering with headaches. I do not believe that her headaches were ever migraines. No medication or treatment has ever given her any relief. Could DHE have caused her strange symptoms? Patsy.
Although remotely possible, neither hair loss nor the noise you describe are likely to have been caused by DHE. The weakness you mention could have been a result of DHE or the Migraine or headache that was being treated, but in either case should not have persisted this long. The shrieking noise coul...
When you start losing your hair, you may want to cut it very short and see how you feel about having a cropped look.
If you do lose all your hair, you have a choice of cover-ups. Or you can go bold and bald. The bare-headed look, accented with dramatic makeup and big, flashy earrings, can be stunning.
Most women, however, want to find some way to disguise their bareness—and keep warm. Then it's a matter of what you're most comfortable with: a wig, a scarf, a hat, or a baseball cap. (Some good resources for purchasing hair-coverings are listed at the end of this section.) Hair Loss and Your Children
From the time they can reach and grab, babies like to feel their mother's hair. It's a part of the warmth and nurturing process, especially during feeding time. As they grow up, little girls often like to play hairdresser with their mother, and boys often get a kick out of pulling their mom's ponytail. So it's natural that hair loss could be an issue for some kids. One patient's children, to...
There are a lot of side effects that patients deal with when they have a flare-up of their IBD. One thing that is often overlooked when discussing the side effects or symptoms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease is what it can do to the hair. Unfortunately hair thinning and loss is a very unpleasant side effect for many patients. While hair loss might not be the most medically significant problem it can still be a devastating one.
There are several reasons for the hair loss experienced in IBD patients. The first reason for this issue is due to malnutrition. Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight over a short period of time may be at a higher risk of experiencing hair loss or thinning of the hair. The mal-absorption of nutrients in IBD patients can also cause issues with hair loss even when the patient maintains a stable weight. Normally this kind of hair loss is only temporary and the hair grows back as nutritional status returns.
