Increased appetite: A sudden increase in appetite in your age may just mean increased metabolism or your body's way of compensating for increased activity. If you have started your medications recently, that can cause increased appetite as well. You should get yourself checked by your doctor to make sure you are ok and do not have a thyroid or other abnormality.
