See your doc: Always been that way? New symptom? Causes can include normal, that's just the way you are; also can be due to poor diet choices, overactive thyroid, parasites, celiac sprue, pancreatic disease, cancer, chronic infection, chronic inflammation, etc. See your doc.

Low weight: Please see your doctor to rule out or identify any medical conditions that may be contributing to your situation. Then you can follow up w/a licensed nutritionist if doc is ok w/that. Peace and good health.
