Eating is difficult.

So, I've recently started having a harder and harder time eating. The thought of it makes my stomach feel all woozy. Breakfast is fine-- it always tastes good and everything (I have about the same thing everyday-- oatmeal and an egg). After that though, no matter how hungry I feel, the thought of food makes me incredibly nauseaus. The only things I want to eat are fruits, veggies and broth. When I try to eat other things, I get about a bite in and can't eat any more.

Also, maybe related-- I drink too much water. I have a bottle with me and usually drain it 2-3 times per hour. Today, randomly, I was craving salt water really really badly, so I made some. It tastes incredibly delicious... but the thought of everything else makes me feel like I'm going to vomit.

Coupled with the fact I feel weak if I don't eat often enough (like, two hours), this has not been fun. Anyone have any idea what might be going wrong with me?

  • Have you been to your doctor? You may have a pituitary tumor, with the water craving. Consider having a scan done of your brain. Of course, start with the basics, including a blood sugar level. Feeling nauseus is often a sign of increased intracranial (brain) pressure.
