Lots of other conditions (inflammatory, allergic, infectious, even autoimmune or psychological) can cause itching and hair loss.
I took the injection...3 month contraception. Instead of birth control pill. Could losing hair be a side effect?
Yes: Yes, but it is not a permanent loss. Each hair goes through a growth phase, a "resting" phase, and then falls out to start the cycle over again. Conditions like pregnancy and use of hormones synchronize much of your hair so that although they will all fall out at the same time they will then start growing back.See 1 more doctor answer
Lots of things: Besides migraine, lots of things can cause left sided headaches (or right-sided headaches). There is no disease which only causes left-sided headaches--if this is what you mean by your question. Other causes of unilateral headaches includes brain tumor, blood clots, bone infections, aneurysms, blood vessel malformations, cysts, scalp abscess, etc.
Not enough info: You have not given enough information to know what might be causing your symptoms.
Headaches: Are very specific to each person. If your doctor thinks there is a problem inside your head - your brain... Then get an MRI rather than a ct. The ct is lots of radiation. The MRI is none. The MRI is more detailed. It costs only 250-500 on insurance. And. It is more definitive. Get it only under a doctors supervision.
? muscle?: Put your fingers over the area where you feel the headache and then open and close. If it feels like the muscle, then look into why the muscle is cramping, which may be the bite, joints and muscle (tmj). The first thing to do though is check with your md to be sure there is no underlying medical problem.
