I started noticing about 4 months ago that I my body was undergoing changes. I have sunken eyes (looks like fat loss under eyelid) and slightly sunken cheeks. My arms, chest, butt and legs are thinner as well. Overall, I look thinner but have not been exercising. My clothes do not fit ... even when I have bought smaller clothes because of my changes. I have probably lost about 15-20 pounds during this stretch. During this time I have been having difficulty going to sleep and also have been getting about 3-5 hours sleep a night while on different sleeping medication. Currently I am using Ambien CR 12.5 and still only receiving about 5 hours of sleep. When I sleep, it doesn't feel that I am resting or recovering. My stool has not been watery diarrhea but not quite solid either. I have not been sexually active for over a year and have tested negative for hiv. My wife passed away from cancer over a year ago and my doctor and family feel that these changes are because of grief and depression. I do not have night sweats or any kind of swelling. I do not agree and feel that there is a physical cause for my problems. Is this something that can be explained by a physical condition?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
