I am coughing up various size hair
I have been feeling lethargic for a few weeks and excessively sleeping for 12 hours sometimes more. I assumed it was a winter bug doing the rounds but today I suddenly become sick and I have struggled keeping even water down. A dry cough came after and there are dark hairs , some long some small and variations on thickness. I have been collecting them in a tissue as I am horrified and worried that this is serious. Please help
