Is This Something I Should Be Concerned For?

I lose a lot of hair.... I mean a lot.. When I get up in the morning... I see that there is a handful of hair on my pillow.. I clean the hair off.. And next morning. .Same thing happens.. When I run my hand thru. My hair without pulling.... I get a handful of hair...

Is this something I should be concerned about? Any reply is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There Are Many Reasons...
There can be many reasons that your hair is falling out. But yes all of them should be of concern-- depending on how much it is -- everybodies hair is on a shedding cycle-- if it is more than ever before be concerned and go to the doctor.
