Rapid Hair Loss
I recommend you visit with a hair loss expert. Most patient lose about 100 hair a day. When you a losing you hair due to male pattern hair loss, your hair begins to shrink away and get smaller with each growth cycle until it no longer grows. If you lose a large hair that you can see, it should come back, perhaps smaller. Again, rapid hair loss needs to be discussed. There safe effective ways to stop your hair loss.

Your biggest enemy is the progressive thinning leading to a balding pattern that is not evident at this point in time. The degree of thinning that you are experiencing would suggest that you should see a doctor who most likely will get Bulk Measurements of your hair to determine the degree of the thinning that you are presently having. If the diagnosis is early genetic hair loss (the most common cause of hair loss in young men), then the best treatment would be the drug finasteride which is highly effective in men of your age and may not only stop the hair loss but possibly reverse it. If you are developing a more advanced balding pattern the HAIRCHECK test will determine the Bulk Measurements of your hair and put a number on that hair loss (a metric) and this will show, over a one-year time frame, how effective the treatment will be. Once you know this information, then you and your doctor need to develop a MASTER PLAN which will define what you need to do over the years to come.
Find a hair loss expert near you and have them analyze your scalp. Your hair shedding can be based off of a lot of things including stress, health history, and genetics.

in my opinion, you need to be evaluated by hair loss expert. They will do a good history, examination, dermoscopy, pull test, possibly biopsy. Rapid hair loss can be due to several ideologies, the most common being telogen effluvium and a rapid androgenic alopecia. A definitive diagnosis needs to be determined prior to treatment. Good luck
