I have loss of appetite. I don't feel like eating.  I had an endoscopy about a year ago that came out negative.  I also have bloating when I eat small amounts of food.  I have been diagnosed with LPR.  Has anyone else had these symptoms?

kevinla, why have you been diagnosed with LPR?  You haven't mentioned any throat symptoms and LPR is in the throat...

I think also, that since you bloat, you should have a colonoscopy done, just to check out the lower part too. 

You should ALSO be checked for gastroparesis.  Because this can also cause loss of appetite.  In gastroparesis, there is a delayed emptying of the stomach and this causes a feeling of fullness.  Please tell your doctor to get you a test for this.  I was tested for gastroparesis when I had no appetite and bloating.  It came out negative.  But, you should certainly get it checked out.  It is a very, very easy test!  You just eat an egg and then lie down while they take pictures.

oh, ok...you just didn't mention the throat symptoms.  have you been checked for gastroparesis?  because every good doctor knows that when you have loss of apetite and bloating, you could also have that (I have LPR and was also checked for gastroparesis).  i actually know a lot about it by now.  unless there is some other reason why you have loss of apetite that you haven't mentioned (such as stress, etc.).
 
The LPR that I have also makes me not want to eat as much, because my throat is so, so swollen.  So you might just have what I have.
