Question: For over 3 months I have lost my appetite and cannot bear the sight of food, I feel weak throughout the day and experience a severe pain the middle of the back which lasts for about 30-40 minutes before suddenly disappearing. I have lost 3 kgs weight and sometimes my face and feet swell up.
What Causes Not Feeling Hungry Anymore
Answer: What is your sex? What is your age?
The symptoms like nausea at the sight of food and severe pain in the back are indicative of jaundice. It is possible that you are having mild form of biliary obstruction or a gall stone.
Do you observe any yellowness in the skin or in the sclera? What is the color of your stools? Is your urine color dark yellow?
Alternatively, if you are a female, it could be an indication of pregnancy. Please get a urine pregnancy test done to evaluate your condition.
