Avatar f tn I hear that loss of appetite isn't an MS symptom. I've had problems with appetite ever since my gall bladder attack a few months ago. While this is causing me to lose weight, it's a little disconcerting - I love food too. The only thing that drives me to eat is a rumbling tummy, and it really has to rumble. When I was taking steroids, I had more appetite, not less, but I'm sure it's different for everyone.

604197 tn?1292308636 I was 43 when my accident occurred. I will probably not ever be the same again. I suffer from dizziness and loss of balance, loss of coordination and a tremor in my right hand whenever I try to write, eat or do anything that involves fine motor skills. But I still see small improvements after 4 yrs. so don't ever give up. Its a long road to recovery and I'm much better off than I was at first.
Avatar f tn This is causing me severe anxiety and depression as I now dread going to work because of embarrassment of noises and feeling of dizziness from not eating and being anxious. I can't focus on work, I've been extremely exhausted, and crying almost everyday. This is horrible I feel like I've lost myself. I can't tell where this came from though as I've never had any intestinal issues before (at least not this severe).

Avatar m tn sometimes i feel as though i am worrying about things for a day or two then it passes but then i start getting other symptoms like muscle weakness, fatigue, and loss of appetite. these symptoms and especially the loss of appetite starts to get to me and then i start worrying about that. i feel like im going to die if i dont eat and that pressure causes me to not feel hungry. i start getting nauseous even thinking about food and that only fuels my anxiety even more.
Avatar n tn Nausea almost every morning, loss of appetite, extreme fatigue, swollen lymph nodes in neck, headaches...I have had lots of labwork done, CT scans, Ultrasound, Endoscopy, Gastric emptying study...still no answer. I take anti nausea medication that the gastroenterologist perscribed to help, but symptoms persist. If anyone has any answers, I'd love to have my life back.

Avatar m tn Causes of chronic depression Sadness, depression, chronic depression. Do you know difference between them? Sadness is a natural and temporary feeling. It does not last long, but it can result in depression. Depression is our response to traumatic events; it can last from 6 to 9 months and should be treated. And what about chronic depression? What about symptoms of chronic depression? If depression lasts longer than nine months, it is chronic depression.
Avatar m tn I know what I just described in the title was basically all the symptoms of puberty. But I know it's not and I know there's something wrong with me. I'm a newly 16 year-old boy. I'm relatively healthy besides the symptoms I listed above. I'll start with the "severe confusion". It's severe sometimes. I was in the car with a friend and we were having a conversation and all of the sudden I didn't know what we were talking about so I turned up the radio so he wouldn't realize anything.
Avatar f tn I have been on 100mg of Topamax since the end of April. I immediately experienced the loss of appetite. I seaked the advice of a naturopath to use it to my advantage because I had about 80 pounds to lose. I see him every Friday and since then, I have lost 43 pounds...:-) It has not been difficult. It seems like he weight is coming off on its own now. I don't crave anything. I'm hoping to reach my goal by January.

Loss of appetite can again be due to certain medications, drug abuse, depression, AIDS, acute and chronic infections, cancers and hypothyroidism. Either you do not eat well or there is increased metabolism as in hyperthyroid states, HIV, cancer etc.

Avatar n tn JR, Fatigue is one of the possible symptoms of depression. Other symptoms of depression include sadness, disturbance of sleep and appetite, difficulty concentrating, loss of interest in previously pleasurable activities, feelings of guilt/hopelessness/worthlessness, and suicidal thoughts. It is important to first seek medical evaluation of your symptoms, to rule out any physical causes.
Avatar f tn I am barely overweight now...Thank God! Getting rid of the Depakote was awesome.. My appetite seems to have disappeared.
Avatar f tn Hi there, Loss of appetite can be due to number of causes. The causes can be mild to severe. Anorexia nervosa, depression all can affect appetite. Thyroid problems, diabetes mellitus, tuberculosis, chronic infections of the kidney or liver, any carcinoma or cancer can cause decreased appetite. What are the other symptoms you are having? These are only a few possibilities. A complete medical history, clinical examination and a work up is essential for determining the cause.
Avatar f tn The way you are taking it builds tolerance, as you found out, and the same addiction issues as a meth addict. Detox of amphetamines definitely causes depression, but depression alone doesn't cause eating disorders on it's own. Like mentioned above, you self-image was suffering before the ephedrine. CBT will be able to help you with redirecting your thinking and help you have a more positive view of yourself. The amino acid L-Phenylananine has helped many with amphetamine recovery.

Avatar f tn Early signs of magnesium deficiency include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. As magnesium deficiency worsens, numbness, tingling, muscle contractions and cramps, seizures (sudden changes in behaviors caused by excessive electrical activity in the brain), personality changes, abnormal heart rhythms, and coronary spasms can occur [1,3-4]. Severe magnesium deficiency can result in low levels of calcium in the blood (hypocalcemia).
