Loss of Appetite

Loss of appetite can occur due to a variety of reasons and is a very common symptom for a lot of diseases and illnesses. This is an indication from the body that the system is out of balance and something is wrong. You must try to find the main cause of the problem rather than just treating the symptom, as it will persist if the underlying problem isn’t dealt with. If nausea or loss of appetite isn’t improving, this means that some sort of medical intervention is necessary and you must consider giving your doctor a visit.

Poor Appetite Due To Persistent Back Pain

If back pain is persistent, it is very common for people to experience nausea and decrease in appetite. This nausea often comes and goes, and is usually felt more after a meal. It can also be felt after a bowel movement in some people. The reason for this nausea is the constant persistent pain that is felt in the body. It worsens after a meal because the abdominal wall muscles exert a pressure on the nerve endings in the spine. Sometimes it occurs after a bowel movement in cases of lower back pain because the movement causes the abdominal muscles to contract, which results in activation of pain sensors in the back.

Persistent back pain may also end up in causing stress and anxiety, which can in turn cause loss of appetite or gastrointestinal upset. These conditions affect the area in the brain that deals with emotions, which also controls metabolism and immune response of the body.

Loss of appetite can also occur due to some other serious medical conditions, but before the diagnosis is made, the doctor will look for other symptoms accompanying them and further investigations will be undertaken.
