Anyone have trouble eating?

I've dropped 36 lbs. 4 pant sizes, 2 shirt sizes and 2 cup sizes. I can not eat. I have to force myself to eat the amount you'd feed an infant. I'm drinking protein shakes but the consistency makes me gag sometimes. I've tried phenegran- it drugs me. Zofran gives me headaches.

I just have NO appetite, I don't enjoy food anymore, I have a lot of nausea and stomach pain :( And when I begin to get to the point where I can manage to force food down, my frigging mouth breaks out. The skin off my tongue came completly off :( I am so sick of this.....

I have not had this problem but I do know it's a common symptom of Lupus.  I've read a lot about the mouth ulcers as well.  I'm so sorry you're going through this :(  Pay close attention to what you DO eat - keep a journal - and see if anything seems to trigger the ulcers or makes them worse.  Dairy and wheat/gluten seem to be the #1 triggers for most people.  I also notice problems with peanuts.  Good luck :(

This happened to me a lot. Steroids usually did the trick though. Have you takled to your doctor about it? If your body isnt getting nutrients, things could only get worse.
