No appetite?

For the past week or so, I've had absolutely no appetite at all. I don't feel like eating ANYTHING, I do not get hungry, and when I try and eat I feel like I've eaten a full-course meal after three bites, and get sick if I eat more. I've tried drinking nutrient shake things, but can only finish about 1/3rd of a bottle, and pretty much the only thing that I can tolerate in somewhat large amounts is soda, which I am making sure is not diet because I really need the sugar. I don't have a scale but I know I've lost some weight because my clothes are fitting differently.

Funny thing is though, I do not feel sick at all otherwise. It is just really weird, and is starting to annoy me because I will have to carefully pick which three Thanksgiving foods I want a bite of tomorrow So...has anyone else ever had anything like this? If so, how long did it last? Anything help it? I have an appointment with my doc next week but figured I would ask here too.

Are you on any medication? Because that can cause appetite loss... That's what happened to me when had what you just described.

Just BC and synthroid...both of which I've been on for a long time, and no recent changes to dosage or anything.

Have you had a lot of anxiety? I can't eat when I'm nervous. I've been through phases like you and eventually my appetite returns but mine are usually only 3-4 days

I'd get hormones checked - may be you need to get your synthroid dose adjusted.

Well sometimes BC can just change effects on your body - even if you've been on it for a while.

I don't think that's it though. What you described happened to me when I was on antibiotics. I couldn't eat for months.

You should go see your doctor. The trick is to reintroduce food little by little. Your stomach is used to not having a lot of food so that's why you feel so full. Try making nutritious smoothies meanwhile. That might help.
