Anxiety/Depression: These are symptoms usually associated with depression, with a component of anxiety. Talk with your family doctor first to make sure there's no underlying medical condition, and then get a psychiatric consultation to determine if medication is needed to treat your symptoms. You might be able to eat even if not hungry, but this is not the issue. Depression is.
