Grieving: Grieving may bring all kinds of painful symptoms, including loss of appetite. It's best to reach out to friends for support during such a difficult time, and spiritual communities may be helpful also. It may be wise to also see your doctor for a general health review, because i don't know how long you've been experiencing this. Sometimes things can morph into depression, which needs treatment.
