Happy New Year! smile

I came down with the flu over the Christmas, Cold, Cough etc.

I have seem to lost my appetite, is it normal? My hunger haven’t return to normal, also my upper abdominal seem to be bloated all last week. Feel like it’s a bit swollen, maybe it’s because I am on my period. I am a bit concerned to be honest.

Has anyone experience of lack of appetite of the flu?

I’ve had lack of appetite with sinusitis for the last 3 weeks. Lost 5lbs. Your body will tell you when it’s ready for food again x

I've definitely had that after a virus and the feeling in your tummy will be because you're not eating much. Try to eat little and often. It'll settle down. Flu is a nasty virus and takes time to get over. Try some probiotics and berocca.

Thank you for your replies! Much appreciated.

I went to see my GP on Tuesday, I was worried about my upper abdominal bloated and the lack of appetite. GP did an stomach examination couldn't feel anything.

My GP think it’s Gastritis Stomach Irritation (Due to being sick and coughing so much I was drawing up a bit of blood/phlegm (chest infection) when I had the flu over Christmas). I was given lansoprazole gastro resistant capsules once a day for 28 days.

i have a blood test on Monday. I am still getting stress out over the due lack of appetite and thinking the worse. I am losing inches but not the lbs. I know I shouldn’t google! confused my anxiety isn’t helping at all the moment.

Thank you once again!
