I'm bit pariond and worrying as recently I had a upset stomach with diorreda twice, feeling nausea and couldn't eat much and nurse said its called stomach gastric flu which was a month ago, however I got better slowly and got appettie back slowly but however I start feel nausea again in the morning, gag and cough with chest infection, nurse gave me antibiotic called emyermtic can't spell but syrup one 4 time a day for 1 week last week and it made me feel nausea and couldn't eat breakfast but ok with lunch but eat dinner no problem and was worried, returned to nurse and she said antibiotic can affect appetite and make me nausea but should go away in a week, so its 3 days ago since my last dose but still bit cough for 2 weeks half. (Non smoker)
So I wasn't hungry this evening but had complan milkshake for breakfast with 1 toast then ham sandwich & Starbuck coffee with yoghurt for lunch but worrying why I'm not hungry/fancy eat dinner and when I eat, feel bland and ages to chew? Force myself to eat yoghurt this evening. Drinks-no problem!
I got things on my mind like what if I got stomach cancer, brain tumour- as got bit pressure on right side behind ears but nurse said its tension but she promised me that I don't have brain tumour, lung cancer and I've lost bit of weight due lost appetite but nurse reassured me that I don't have brain tumour & stomach cancer so obsessive to check my weight to make sure i put weight on but only put 2lb on from 6st 12lb to 7stone but bmi is 19.3 and body fat is 16.3 by use boot machine weight.
It made me feel down about body fat as I want to put more weight on but at home I use scales it said 7st half? I'm confusing and worry about losing weight?? I'm 24 and 4ft 11in.
I'm tired of worrying! Going to party tonight but feeling down and not up for it.
Can worrying/anxiety affect appettie?
I'm being refered to see CBT counselling and should see counsellor in 2-4 weeks time.
Pls reassure me! P.s no sleep problems as chamomile helps a lot!
