Hello,
Is there any stress or mental tensions that you are going through? Also has there been any palpitations or trembling?
You seem to be going through acute anxiety. Try and find out the cause, discuss it with someone whom you can trust and help you sort out the problem. Try meditation or breathing exercises which would help you relax. Divert your mind by doing things that you enjoy like going out for the weekend, pursuing your hobbies, listening to some relaxing music or catch up on a comedy film.

If it does not subside, I would suggest you to visit your family physician or a homeopath who can help in identifying the cause and suggest appropriate medications.

Hi, I m a 21 year old girl. I haven t felt hungry since I was 13. I don t have a problem with food, I eat normally, but it s because I like to eat, not because I m hungry. I m neither fat nor thin, just normal and perfectly healthy. But like I said, I never ever feel hungry. I tested myself, like going for a long time eating nothing, and still, no hunger. Every time I ve asked a doctor about it, they would just say You must eat , but I already do... Nothing seems to explain why I m never hungry. It s not a bad thing I guess, but something could be wrong... Do you have any insight?
