Yes I have  been under a lot of stress since my husband died.  And I just do not want to eat- I get nauseated, and food tends to stick in my throat- nothing tastes good either.  I started drinking carnation instant breakfast and Fuse energy drinks- and take vitamins too.

I've been having this problem too lately, and I'm pretty convinced that it is anxiety. I'll be really hungry then after I eat my stomach hurts, just like your question said. I'm getting medicine for my anxiety, maybe that would help for yours?

Severe stress has the symptoms you are describing.  However, hunger and nausea are also symptoms of diabetes and thyroid disease which are triggered by stress.  There are other signs, of course.  Take the time to visit a doctor.  Knowing for sure what is causing your ailment will give you peace of mind ... And reduce stress.

Eat properly. Your body needs to be healthy, strong, happy and properly fueled to help you tackle stress. Like it or not, stress is a bodily reaction to anything that disturbs its natural state, meaning that your body can have a profound effect on producing and relieving stress.

  • Water has been shown to relieve stress.That's because a dehydrated body creates cortisol, a stress hormone. An under-hydrated body creates stress to motivate the owner of the body to properly care for him/herself.
  • Start decreasing caffeine and alcohol intake. In some cases, alcohol intake increases stress response in humans while being linked to substance dependency, a stressful condition itself.Caffeine is also responsible for raising stress levels, especially at work, so try to stick to water as a general rule.
  • Eat a healthy breakfast and healthy snacks during the day. It is better to eat several smaller meals throughout the day than to consume three large meals.
  • For a healthy stress-free diet, consume more complex carbohydrates such as whole-grain breads and pasta, foods high in vitamin A such as oranges, foods high in magnesium like spinach, soybeans or salmon, and black and green tea, which contain antioxidants.
