It is not unusual to find "A lot "of hair coming out, you typically loose 100 hairs a day and this can seem quite allot when you have long hair.
As your hair grows slowly then it may be coming to the end of its life cycle which may explain the slow growth and loss.
As stated above, please visit a good quality salon, (go to a few for the consultation and choose the one that you feel most comfortable with and gives the best advice).
There is a great guy I know in USA called Nelson Chan who has a salon in Hollywood. See if you can visit his site for advice.
