Hi all, it's me again with another question. Sorry, sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself on here! ?

In the past month I've totally lost my appetite. When I even look or smell food it just makes me nauseous, let alone the taste. Now there are only a few foods tha that I can force down without feeling like I'm going to throw up. My doctor gave me an anti-nausea medicine but it doesn't seem to be helping...  I've started losing a lot of weight because of it and I'm worried that it's going to cause problems. I've been taking a multivitamin to try to make sure that I get some sort of nutrients in my body but I don't know if it's enough.

Has anyone else had this problem? I don't know if it's the medicines or the fibromyalgia itself doing this? Is there any way to make it stop?

Hello @CharlieE‍, thank you for opening this discussion. I'm sorry to hear about the nausea, that must be really hard to deal with! Let me tag some other members who can possibly share with you. emoticon cute

Hello everyone, how are you today? Have any of you noticed that your fibromyalgia affects your appetite? Have you ever experienced nausea? What do you think is behind it - the fibro or the medications you may be taking? How did or do you manage it?

Feel free to share here!

Take care,
