Eating is a chore

Patient : I've been feeling strange lately. It's been a few months, but I never thought it as a big deal until now because it's becoming really frustrating. I'm constantly hungry, but I don't want to eat anything. Nothing is appetizing and when I do eat to get rid of the hunger, I can't eat more than a few bites. This leads me to being hungry every other hour. Eating is such a chore! I don't know how it all started. I wish I would just crave something. I never went on diets and stuff so this is really quite strange. I take multivitamins and iron supplements, but nothing else. I don't even have allergies. So I thought I was pretty healthy.
Symptoms:  hungry, but don't want to eat
