Sudden weight loss

I have been battling some illness for almost 12 weeks. Over the last 3 weeks I lost 11 pounds without trying. Is this something serious? I went from 220 to 209 just like that. Every time I went to the doctor, they weighed me, and I watched as I lost pounds after doing nothing. There was about a half week where I lost my appetite. I have seemed to get it back, but I am still losing the weight.

I told my doc that I was worried that I was losing weight this fast, but she had nothing to say about it.

My doc thinks I have sever acid reflux.

I have been depressed slightly, but I thought I was over that.

What do you think?

Re: Sudden weight loss

Talk to your doctor and see if you have Dysmotility. "removed" read the symptoms of Dysmotility. I have also lost some weight. Due to the fact that sometimes when I eat I'm not able to finish my whole meal. Because my stomach is full. My doctor advice me to eat a balance meal and drink Ensure. Which is suppose to help me maintain my weight or gain. But if I keep loosing weight. I will go back to my Doctor and talk to her about Dysmotility. I also suggest that if possible try to Exercise. This is suppose to increase your appetite. I hope that this information will be a great help to you.
