Loss of appetite after back injury

Several months ago, I fell and hurt my low back. I was laid up for two months. I lost my appetite and now I'm having trouble eating. I have lost weight and strength. I get sick to my stomach every time I try to eat. Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Re: Loss of appetite after back injury

Are you taking any medication for pain or other? Often meds can play with your appetite and even make you nauseous.
Another thing when we are not active and in pain, our bodies don't need as much food since we don't use many calories.
Unless its significant pain or use of medication, I had never heard that spinal injury itself can cause loss of appetite.

Good luck on your recovery
