What is lack of appetite?
« on: June 15, 2014, 01:37:11 PM »
I'm 25 years old and having had swollen lymph nodes in my groin and armpits for 7 years now I'm terrified of lymphoma, slow growing. One of the biggest symptoms of lymphoma and just cancer in general is lack of appetite. But what does that mean? Does it mean I'm never hungry? Or does it mean that I don't want to eat anything? I've kinda been feeling both lately

Slippery slope as anxiety can cause this, too.

Lack of appetite means going days without feeling hungry and feeling 'put-off' by food. Like the feeling you get when you've eaten too much and you're offered food you really don't want.

I don't get hungry but food doesn't put me off either. I can Still eat without problems but I can also not eat for most of the day and still not feel hungry. Obviously not eating isn't really something  that helps with anxiety so I eat smalls meals every so hours just to get something in the tank lol.
