Not eating for nine days

Patient

Q: Today will be the 9th day that I have not eaten. I'm not starving myself. I am just not hungry and when I try to eat, it doesn't taste right. When I force myself to take another bite, I just want to throw it back up. I have been to see a doctor 2 days ago, but he didn't provide any answers. In fact, he said there was nothing he could do for me and hopefully my stress levels would go back down. He gave me a B12 shot in hopes that would help. It hasn't. Today I wake up with a massive migraine, I can feel my heartbeat in my chest and I'm dizzy. I'm having a hard time keeping a straight thought in my head. I'm at a loss of what to do and need advice now.
