Fractured vertebrae, bruised, lost appetite. Why the drastic change?

My boyfriend and I were in a motorcycle accident, which was his fault. He has 2 fractured vertebrae and I got bruised and banged up. Before the accident he ate a LOT. Now even after 3 weeks, he hardly eats anything. Just says he isn't hungry. No internal injuries, etc. What could cause this drastic change in appetite?

As he met with an accident recently it might be an anxiety disorder and with vertebral compression fracture may cause persistent pain, kyphosis, breathing difficulties, LOSS OF APPETITE, and reduced quality of life, all factors that, together, induce a negative spiral from which patients struggle to emerge.I f it is more severe you can consult your doctor.Thank you.
