Hair shedding, anyone?

I've not posted on this group before. I'm 42, peri-menopausal, and have been having bouts of hair shedding. Actually, I have had a few over the past 5 years and the phase goes; but this particular phase seems to be several months, longer than the others.

My scalp feels irritated too, but can't decide if that's in my head

I'm going to get some blood tests done but I've done those before and it was nothing extraordinary.

Any thoughts on what I can do? I used to have gorgeour hair and it's definitely becoming lifeless and thin
