How old are you? Those symptoms can be due to lowered oestrogen.
Re hair, have you had your ferritin checked and if so do you know the number?

42. Was worried last year I was perimenopausal but bloods tests said was ok. I was also low in ferritin for 18mths- very heavy periods that's why I had the coil but now wondering it it's causing the hair loss and severe dry eyes, vaginal dryness and anxiety I have been suffering ?
