Question Rapid Weight loss is killing me..

I dont know where to turn to.I got really sick about 7 months ago. The doctors have done so many test and still cant find out whats wrong with me. I guess my main concern is my weight. I starting losing weight about the same time but i wasnt eating very much so i thought thats what was wrong. Up until recently I havent been that concerned about it. I eat all the time at least 5 times a day meals and snacks. I stayed around 110 for about 4 months. The doctor said it was normal for my age and height but i knew something was wrong. Since about a month ago ive been losing alot of weight, even when my appetite has increases. In two weeks ive lost down to about 95 pounds. I dont know whats going on and im scared. Does anyone know why im losing so much weight so fast? What could be causing this?

Re: Rapid Weight loss is killing me..

You're saying that you've lost 15 pounds in a month while eating plenty of food? That is reason for concern, but there are a heck of a lot of things that could cause it.

Have you told the doctor that you're losing more weight? What does he say? What other symptoms do you have? Stomach problems? Abnormal tiredness? Pain anywhere?

Definitely call your doctor as soon as the office opens and let them know about this. In the meantime, concentrate on getting fluids and eating nutritious high calorie foods, like nuts, eggs, dried fruits, cheese, etc.
