My Traumatic Stress - A New All Trauma Community If you're having a difficult time with a minor or major traumatic event, not PTSD specific, we now support all trauma types at My Traumatic Stress community. No diagnosis required. Hi, I was diagnosed with PTSD 8 months ago, and the last few months I've been losing much more hair than normal. It's especially bad when I wash & dry my hair- a whole handfuls worth each time. Can this be related? I know you can get temporary hair loss 1-3 months after a major stress, but is PTSD the same? Has anyone had this? If so, has yours stopped?! Am worried I'm going to have no hair left soon! Can already feel it's thinner generally.
