It is important to know whether your hair loss is actually normal or excessive. It is quite common to lose about 50-100 strands of hair each day and anything over 100 is considered excessive. The cause of a sudden excessive hair loss can be investigated with a careful history, examination of the scalp and some blood test. Before seeing a doctor, it may also be useful to take photos of how much hair you are losing a day so that you can show the doctor.
