Question: I am ALWAYS exhausted, feel terrible, my hair is falling out

Can someone please help me? I am ALWAYS exhausted, my hair is falling out, and I feel terrible all the time!

Probably a healthier lifestyle is all that is required to rejuvenate. One may begin by quitting smoking and exercising. If after that the problems persist, you might want to discuss regarding alterations in your medicines with your doctor. Down that lane, probably a blood test might also help rule out other causes.

Hope this helps.
