The hair on my lower legs has dramatically gotten thinner to almost bald where my jeans rub.
Jeff had this leg baldness thing going on, too. Freaked him out! I've learned it can be a sign of poor circulation, or hypercoagulation in your blood. People with diabetes or heart disease get this, too. His is better now with proteolytic enzymes. Hair's coming back (at least on his legs, if not his head!) and the blood spots (petechiae) are gone. Headache can be a sign of vascular issues, too.
I know neuros never recognize things like bleeding stomachs, bald legs, headaches, or in my husband's case, high liver enzymes and jaundice...but it's good to know your "signs of relapse" and get on it right away. Of course, I believe now that it's directly related to the vascular system, but Jeff hasn't had a relapse in 2 years...so maybe we'll know differently in the future.
