to answer your question its roughly 3 weeks without food but by the end of the 3 weeks you would be emaciated. I would go and see the doctor right away and hope you feel better soon

@SoontobeMrsA: Hmmm…I’m pretty sure that a human body can go without food for 3 weeks…but I’m pretty sure that’s before dying. So I would try a protein shake! If not, I think you should go see a doctor!! We need you healthy, darling!

Yeah please go to the doctor!!  My grandfather just passed away last week because he stopped eating (he was dying of cancer).  It was truely horrific to watch – you need to get some food in you!!!

@SoontobeMrsA: I’m sorry hun, go see a doctor as soon as you can. Have you been able to stay hydrated? Little sips of room temperature flat ginger ale or pedialyte?

I’m sorry you are feeling so sick.

Eeek!  At this point, I think you should get yourself to the ER.

@SoontobeMrsA: call you doctor’s office and ask for phenergan. Tell then you care having severe nausea.

@SoontobeMrsA:  In my experience, when the general dr says, “don’t worry” they’re just blowing you off.  It could be a hernia and if your stomach is messed up, it could be a bad one.  I would try and make an appointment with more doctors until you find one that listens.  I had a general dr. tell me I was fine and needed rest when I had mono in high school.  I could’ve died!!  As one poster said earlier, they can prescribe you anti-nausea medicine.

You need to go to the doctor hun!  And you need to find some time for “me time.”  Even if it’s only for a half hour, you have to do something for yourself!  Go get a pedicure…don’t want to spend the money on a pedicure?  Lock yourself in the bathroom with a tea/coffee/wine/whatever, light a candle, listen to some music, and give yourself a pedicure.  Your health is so important, and if that means you have to sneak away for 45 minutes, then do it!
