Where has my appetite gone?

I go through this periodically - normally associated with stress. Don't feel particularly stressed atm. I have completely lost my appetite for a couple of weeks. After a few mouthfuls I feel full and uncomfortable. BMI is down to 18 so I do not want to lose any more weight. Am off on holiday at the end of the week, chances of being able to get a doc appt pretty negligible I'd say as its not an urgent thing.

Any ideas on stopping the slide? Eating frequently just takes away my appetite for meals. Am steering my eating to high fat foods.

Could you be anaemic? Could take some multi-vits and iron. And make an appointment to see your GP when you're back from your holiday?

Thinking about it, that does make so much sense. Lots and lots of headaches, needing to sit down to do things like brush teeth. Generally feel like I'm out of oomph.

Any recommendations on iron that won't bung me up?

Will make an appt with gp too.
