Hair loss and frequent urination

Hi,

I have been experiencing hair loss since approx mid december 2010. I had blood tests done for thyroid, anemia &  white cell count, but they came back normal. I have loosing more hair than usual and when i went for a hair cut, my hairdresser asked me if i just had a baby, as she brushed my hair she questioned the amount of hair on the brush. I''ve also be urinating a lot more, especially today, as i have only 1 coffee this morning, 1 tea middday and about 250ml water this afternoon and i have go to the loo 5 times with a bladder that feels full. I''m also very hungry in the mornings, always tired, irritable, bruising occasionally but only on my knees... i''ve also lost about +- 4kgs in under 4 months and my size are a little baggy now...

Please help - should i be concerned or not??

Thanks, Jacs
