Hoping someone can help me! I have experienced hair loss with no known cause at the age of 22 years old. Absolutely no history in my family. After paying thousands of dollars for all kinds of doctors, I got no where. I researched Iodine and started taking one Idoral tablet a day with 3-4 Brazil nuts. My hair STOPPED shedding. I was literally blown away. I kept taking Iodine for about 3-4 weeks. I was slowly getting symptoms and not realizing they were related to iodine. First my mouth became sore. Then I started having crazy heart palpitations. I almost checked into the ER. I started having hot flashes which I have never experienced in my life. (I am only 27) I was expericing the strangest feeling of being cold, but hot on the inside. If that even makes sense? I became extremely dehydrated no matter how much water I drank. The worst symptom of them all that has not subsided at all is my throat. It feels like it is extremely tight. It's is a very uneasy feeling. I have stopped Iodine for about 3 weeks now and still having symptoms. I am scared I have really messed up. Prior to the iodine, my only complaint was my hair loss. Now I am full of problems :-(. I guess I'm looking to hear if anyone experienced these symptoms? How long did they take until they subsided? Thank you to anyone who can help me out !
