Hi Barbara it is easy quite normal to lose appetite when you cross time zones, more likely the more zones you cross. I ate very small amount in Bangkok, but did drink yes. Slept quite a bit. My appetite had been on the slide through December, couldn’t see a trigger. I was eating less and continuing to do moderate exercise. a possible trigger I wonder? It was hot and humid in Bangkok but was there 24 hours and only spent an hour out if the hotel room. Problem was on arriving in Australia, but it was just a warm day that day, about 22 degrees, not like some of the hot ones I have experienced since.
I am still struggling to eat! Will have to force feed and if I can’t keep it down I can’t. I have lost about 8-9kg in 6 weeks, was weighed today. Sleeping so bad at the moment, the myoclonus really gets in the way. I drift off and just as I do the jerks wake me up. Not sure this is normal but it sucks! Probably the worst symptoms because without good sleep its impossible for dysautobomics to function. I am taking in a banana though and a multivitamin yes. I saw a different gp here today and he was well clueless. It felt like she didn’t understand the terminology! She concluded anxiety. She wondered why I had had so many scans. It is easier to get them here in oz though. I was presyncopal again in the waiting room. I might have to take a Valium tonight though if the lack of sleep continues…..unless the myojerks continue!!
Had MRI and head CT). Results in 2 days, with cd to bring home, so quick!
