Nauseus and no appetite for past week

Patient

Q: I am an otherwise healthy 21 year old female. For the past week or so I have had no appetite whatsoever.I practically have to force myself to eat and I am lucky if I get a couple of hundred calories in. I have also been getting these awful waves of nausea where I feel like I am on the verge of throwing up. I have been having to use the restroom about 4-5 times a day due to upset stomach. It is very loose, and only a very little amount, each time. I haven't been under any more stress than usual, and I haven't started taking any medications. I have been making sure to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Does anyone know what may be causing this? Thank you.
