Phobia and weight: Sorry to hear. Feelings of "constant worry", plus three other symptoms of other manifestations of anxiety, would qualify you for the diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder. Some times when people are really anxious they lose their appetite, and, as a result, they lose weight. Two strategies: 1) get the anxiety treated. 2) rule out a condition called pheochromocytoma. Talk with your doc.
