New (young) hairs falling out, could it be related to stress or illness?

My hair is about a foot and a half in length.  I always loose long (old) hairs that reached the end of their cycle, but in recent weeks I’ve been losing hairs that just started growing (baby hairs).  These can be anywhere from an inch to a foot long.  I have been under a lot of stress this year and have slept very little.  Could stress be the cause?  Or could it be an illness like hyperthyroidism???

    Yes, stress could be the cause. Yes, it could be an illness related to thyroid function.

    Stress on it’s own does not cause hair loss.  Something is wrong with your body.

    Anxiety and disturbed sleep are also symptoms of hyperthyroidism.  I would see a doctor if I were you.
