I wasnt sure exactly where to place this. For the past few days, eating anything has been a struggle for me. I seem to have no apetite. When I do have food in front of me, I can eat only small amounts. Nothing tastes "good" to me. After eating, I get a sick, heavy feeling...sometimes I'm very nauseous. Any ideas as to what could be causing this? I'm an 18 year old female in otherwise good health.
I recognize I could be pregnant. My last period was May 24th. I'm expecting my period within the next day or two.
I've had some illness in the morning, but just an empty sick feeling. I've never been tempted to throw up. I admittedly have been VERY emotional the past few days (crying, mood swings, etc), but I'm not sure if this is just my period coming.
The last real factor that makes me question pregnancy may be strange, but I've never experienced it before. I always expect my face to break out before my period, but my face began breaking out approx. 1 week after my last period.
This could be several things. The first that comes to mine is Thyroid disease, depression, or pregnancy????? Have you ruled out pregnancy? When your thyroid is hyper you will be thinner and won't eat as much. If you are going through some stressful problem,(loss or breakup) this may be the result of depression. See a Dr. to exactly pin point this problem, because this could be something critical.
