Hey everyone, this is not especially important, but I am curious none the less. My husband says that he has noticed accelerated hair loss on his head since his symptoms first appeared 2 & 1/2 years ago. Has anyone else noticed this phenomenom or is this just his excuse for going bald?:mrgreen:

My mom's hair also got rather thin during her battle with this terrible disease. My mom battled with bulbar. I am not sure if hair loss is related to the disease. I have not heard anyone else bring this up.

Hubby's hair is thinning also. Who knows if it is related to ALS or not...

Mine fell out long before the ALS. One thing for sure though, it may not grow on your head but it sure will grow wild on your butt and in your ears and nose.

Yes, we do. The nose keeps growing while everything else shrinks. And although the hair on our heads gets thinner, it grows out of our ears and nose and even a few sprigs on the chin. That's old age, my friend!:-D
