Anxiety affect appettie?
During early hours of morning I did wake up few times and worrying about pregnant, make sure I remember what I dream few secs after I wake up but couldn't remember etc it start make me feel more anxious but try to ignore and fell asleep.
So every morning (appox 2 months now) I seem can't eat breakfast & not hungry but I do force myself to eat toast either cereal but seem ages to chew then swallow and I'm worried because I've lost bit of weight, felt like my stomach had strunk and left me worrying bit more as I used to eat breakfast everyday but now I seem not, but okay with lunch and fine with dinner.
I did had a stomach gastric flu last nov for 11 days (lost appetie, weak, feel nausea & diorreda twice sorry too much info) its when my anxiety start and I wondered if it damage my stomach? Been to GP over 10 times in 2 months, had a full blood count test included anemia- all come back normal then I had cough for 3 week now most in morning and don't cough when I sleep, gave me antibiotic called emergyilicn syrup one and make me feel nausea & headaches but determind to finished the course of 7 days and its finished 2 weeks ago. I wondered why I'm like this and I don't want to lose more weight!! my favourite nurse reassured me and said anxiety/worrying affect my appetie and said there is nothing wrong with me as I was worried about brain tumour, lung cancer & stomach cancer....No problem with drinks as I drink lots of green tea with honey, cup of tea- once a day only, water & chamomile flower before bed.
Did explained her over the phone yesterday, she said once I see counselling my appetite will return but I'm worried what if it doesn't? What if its something else wrong? I'm NOT going to google AT ALL!!
I wondered anyone is the same? Also does anxiety affect memory? I forget a little like where I park my car & what I dream and bit funny dull pain/twinges on right sude of head near back of neck & ears....pariond about what if brain tumour but nurse reassured me that I don't have it!!
