Hey, so I'm 27 with CFS since I was 18. For the last 2 years I've been rapidly losing my hair to MPB. My hair has been one of my greatest assets since I was sick. Its great. I could slick in front of my face no matter how tired I was and pull off the roguishly tired antihero. Without it, well, I'm pale, I'm sick, I'm very thin and I can't really go for a muscular build given the cfs. I will be pretty hideous bald and sick. I have an option: propecia, but as some of you may know it can cause depression, low libido, inhibits certain neurosteriods (allopregnalone) and, rarely, cause post-finasteride syndrome which is like a grab bag of persistent hormonal problems. However, many take it and are fine. The frustrating thing is I have been pursuing a dysautonomia treatment and have solid improvements, even in the irrepressible fatigue. I feel like will be able to be more active in my life and get to enjoy it. Going bald means starting like over again from 27 looking like shit. I should also note that I've been taking ativan, which works in a similar way to allpregnalone, for insomnia since the start of my illness. To you guys it may seem like an easy decision to avoid all the risks but I'm the one who will have to live with the ugliness (and I will look like shit), the baldness depression, etc. I can't emphasize the benefits of my hair. It's probably been my favorite thing in life since I was boy. Its awesome hair. So, any of you guys take propecia and been fine? been screwed?
