More hair loss on one side of head with TE?

I am a 22 year old female who was diagnosed with TE in december. My symptoms started with increased hair shedding in September 07. I believe that it was brought on by my bad eating habits (I was anorexic) and possibly the start of Loestrin 24 BC which I swapped for Yasmin after a few months. The shedding seemed to slow down by december 08 and now I don't lose more than 50 hairs a day... probably more like 25. However, I am concerned because throughout the shedding process, my hair has seemed to shed more from my right side than the left. Also, the right side of my head itches a little. I've been using ketaconazole shampoo but it only seemed to help a little. I told my dermatologist this, but she said that the density looks equal on either side. I think she is wrong. It feels to me like the hair is diffusely thinner on the right half of my head but mostly thinner in the temple area (this is the area, where I can definitely tell it is thinner). Even though I am shedding less, I still seem to be losing more from the right than the left in the shower. I part my hair in half when I comb it out and I always collect more from the right side but lots of the hair that comes out is shorter thinner hairs. They are usually about 2 inches long and a lighter brown (my hair is dark brown) with a big club tip on the end. I read that sometimes in telogen efflivium when regrowth starts little hairs grow first, then fall out, and then normal hair begins to grow.

Is this true? Also, is it normal to lose more hair from the right side than the left? I started out with insanely thick hair so the thinning on the right side is not horrible (everyone thinks I'm crazy when I try to point it out to them), but I am just concerned about it. I'm annoyed that my doctor didn't seem to take me seriously because I still have lots of hair. I am going to see a specialist in a few weeks, but I wanted to post on this board because I can't stop worrying about it!

My dad had been suffering from hair loss and only recently he started to see a huge difference with his hair (lots of fine hair growing out especially at the temple area) after trying out the various natural techniques taught to grow hair for 1 week at this website

I must say its a very informative, effective and easy to follow step-by-step guide. I highly recommend it to anyone who is suffering from hair loss.

And i assure you that you won't find this natural hair growing techniques on the internet.

Hope it helps ! =)
