@HourThyme:  Hormones?

I can’t eat when I’m on my period.  Food just sounds gross to me for 6 days.   It’s actually a really good thing haha

@HourThyme:  So I am a person who LOVES to eat.  I would say I’m more hungry than the average person.  If I’m stressed, I still get hungry, but my stomach doesn’t feel like actually eating– but the sensatipn of hunger is still there.

 

At the end of October last year…..there were a few days where I didn’t eat much.

Then one day I woke up and I straight up wasn’t hungry.  Not even a little tiny bit.  Nothing. Nada.  I had plenty of energy- wasn’t tired at all.  But not hungry.  It started to freak me out a little bit.  My mom said “oh, that happens to me sometimes.”- which wasn NOT comforting because it has NEVER happened to me before in my 33 years.  So on day 2, I made a DR’s appt.  My seemed more interested in making sure I wasn’t pregnant since I had missed my period– and I *thought* I was hungry when we were at the DR, so after a negative pregnancy test, I left the DR’s office and ate a small meal @2pm.  Wasn’t hungry again ALL night or ALL the next day.  Went back to the DR’s office– my DR wasn’t available, but I saw another DR.

Again– he didn’t seem to think it was weird that I had absolutley no hunger sensation.  I lost about 10 pounds over a week because I wasn’t eating.  He took some blood to check for my thyroid function.

That night, I frced myself to eat a very small meal of soup.  Following day, I ate small little snacks….and slowly my hunger came back.  There never was a solid explanation for this.  In the meantime, my bloodwork came back to show I have PCOS– but that has nothing to do with the not hungry deal.

 

So basically, it was a 2 week deal where I slowly started to lose my appetite, then had zero hunger, then worked my way back to being hungry again.

As I’ve already said, my DR’s didn’t think it was strange (neither one of them)–

 

do you have your appetite back?
