I’ve had a similar concern/question about hair growth, or lack thereof.
On my legs, in some of the areas effected by the neuropathy, it seems that hair is either being lost, or is not regrowing as it should be/used to. Basically, everywhere that socks touch, my legs are “bald”. Looks pretty dang funny, let me tell you! And, I’ve raised my kids in such a way that I KNOW I’ll hear about it this summer when I start wearing shorts!! 😀
My thought was that perhaps the nerve damage is impeding the growth somehow, by damaging the folicles or some such thing. The nerve involvement in my legs, during my last EMG, was determined to be all sensory, if that effects your response.
Has anyone else had similar observations?
