Does anyone else have a problem where after they have a particularly sever anxiety attack they cannot eat? For 2 weeks the only food I could even put in my mouth was apple sauce and those little fruit cups.

I had trouble eating because of severe digestive problems and had anxiety associated with the symptoms (e.g., scary-bad bloating) that I suffered from before I became aware of food sensitivities that I had developed. I would recommend trying to eat some solid food but if you just can't then try some nutrition shakes because while fruit is good for you, going for a week or more without eating anything with any protein or fat or calcium in it will possibly make anxiety even worse. Calcium rich foods can naturally calm you down so if you can try to eat a bit of yogurt (assuming you're not allergic) then it might help. Good luck.

I have a problem eating in the morning... I'm just not hungry because I have severe morning anxiety but once the anxiety subsides usually later like mid-morning to noon time I can eat a little something... I get heartburn all the time... It's more like acid reflux so I take Omeprazole daily which seems to help a little... Not all the time though... Sometimes I have to take Pepcid AC and Tums... The acid reflux is due to the anxiety so it's kind of a catch 22... Your Anxiety attacks are causing you to not be hungry?? Or is it that you get nauseous??
I have troubles swallowing with anxiety. Lately I can barely eat at all. When I have trouble swallowing, putting food in the equation makes me nearly choke. It's really difficult to eat around others because of this. I have problems when I'm by myself but I force myself through it (I don't care how crazy I look when I'm alone). Right now I'm really suffering this particular ailment. Hopefully it will get better.
