Chronically ill, now can't eat...

Hello friends,

I am pretty sick with several serious illnesses, and need daily care, take lots of medications, and I am becoming more and more alarmed because I have just stopped eating.

I do not have any appetite, and nothing sounds good to me. I have begun to have nausea following any attempts to eat, almost seasick feeling.

This seasick feeling has also begun to make riding in the car unbearable. For example, yesterday I went for a massage and acupuncture, leaving there feeling wonderful, and hungry! By the time we arrived home 20 minutes later, I was ill the rest of the night.

Of course, I know I need to eat to keep my brain functioning, but I simply can't do it. Here's the kicker...it has been about 3 weeks now.

I am cared for by many wonderful doctors, so I have access to any medical care I need, but I am embarrassed about this. Why would anyone simply stop eating? It makes no sense.

I do have some very serious illnesses including kidney failure, heart disease, and very unstable BP.

I know the answer is so easy..just EAT-that is why I am hesitant to talk to my doctor about it, but then again...that is even dumber.

Talk some sense into me friends! Thanks

Re: Chronically ill, now can't eat...

you are on several medications? check with your doctor today, I was on several, totally lost my appetite, it was the side effect of two of them, ate almost nothing for several weeks?
tapered off now and back to the piggie I have always been.
Take Care,
Nan

shipscook...

Thanks! Makes perfect sense,

I have added some major pain medications over the last few months, and I do believe they could be the culprits. I think I will go ask my friends over on the pain management board...
