Two yrs ago I lost the feelings of hunger & fullness.  It's helpful since I don't eat anything after 3 pm but on the other hand it could be quite detrimental since I don't feel full even after I eat what's on my plate & know it is enough to fill me up.  The GI doc shrugged his shoulders.  Does anyone else experience this?

I'm sort of in the same boat right now.  I have been on Nexium for 5 weeks and I've noticed this last week that I've lost all sensation of hunger.  I actually feel full almost immediately after beginning to it.  I also feel incredibly bloated.
 
Are you on PPI's?  Perhaps we're experiencing side effects.

I am on the opposite end. Since I started taking the Prilosec Perscription I am hungry all the time. I am glad I started running again otherwise I would be huge.

Any time lack of appetite and bloating come into play, you want to look into motility issues.  Is your stomach emptying at a slower-than-normal rate?  Request a gastric emptying study from your doc.

I simply don't feel hunger pangs, no stomach growling and never feel full after eating.This occurred before I started PPI and continues now that I've been on prevacid over a yr.  Food tasts good and I enjoy eating, just never get hungry or full.  I just wondered if anyone else who has GERD experienced this.  It's not a problem but I'm just curious.
