I wasn't sure where to post this around here. I've been having a problem with unexplained weight loss. I don't know what to do. I guess it began a couple years ago. I had went to my Ob/Gyn and she has asked me where the 17 lbs I had lost since I saw her last went. (I had seen her the year before, so I had lost 17 lbs in 1 year) I told her I didn't know. She was concerned. I'm small to begin with, and I cannot afford to lose any weight. She checked for internal bleeding with one of those little test things, there was none. She did a chest x-ray to see if I had tuberculosis. It turned out I had pneumonia. I was treated for it and that was it. I did gain a couple pounds again, but I never fully gained back all I had lost. My weight stayed the same for a while. I had again started to lose weight again. I mentioned it to my family doctor, because my clothes were not fitting me. (getting too big). He seemed unconcerned. The weight loss stopped, and I gained a couple pounds back. Anyway, it seems this unexplained weight loss is happening again. I am not trying to lose weight. I have no idea how I'm even losing any, what with all the stuff I eat. I have a new doctor (well, new since the last one who blew off the weight loss). He has been yelling at me about the weight loss. (more like nagging than actual yelling.) Telling me to gain weight, to eat this or that. I am really trying, but it's not working. I see him every 4-6 weeks. My next appointment is next week, and I don't want to go. I weighed myself the other day to see if I have gained any weight, and I have lost another pound since I saw him 3 weeks ago. (It might be a total of maybe 5 pounds in 2 months or so I have lost?) I don't want him to get on me again. I just want to cry. I don't know what the problem is. I feel ashamed because of my size. I really want to gain weight. I just don't know how.
BTW, I feel fine. I just get a little tired sometimes. I've had problems with my bones aching/hurting, but that comes and goes and isn't all the time. (I think it's my bones?) Any time I've had blood work or tests, they always come back fine. (I haven't had any in about a year)
Can anyone give me ideas of how I can gain some weight?
