Multiple things: The most common cause of combined loss of appetite and insomnia, would be depression. You could start with your primary care physician for an evaluation -- and depending on what all is going on with you, s/he may also want you to see a psychiatrist and/or sleep specialist. If depression is diagnosed, there are helpful treatments with both psychotherapy and medications. Many reasons for hope!
