I can't get myself to eat or gain an apatite

Patient

Q: I can't get myself to eat or gain an apatite. I get sharp pains in my stomach with waves of nausea. I get light headed, and have no strength. When ever I try to eat I get even more nauseas. Food doesn't taste the same. The only thing that seems to help is marijuanna. I'm actually able to eat and hold down food. But I have to stop for a job. It's been 1 day since I stopped. Only been able to take 1 bite of a peanut butter and jelly sand which. Is there something I can do or take to help my eat?
