No desire to EAT.. but hungry.

After i had my wisdom teeth removed i have had no desire to eat, yet it seems like I'm starving myself but not on purpose..

It's rare but i'm a young lady who actually wants to gain weight and get muscles.. i've lost 8 lbs in the past 4 weeks.
I like to eat but it seems that when i do i feel like i'll vomit even after 5 bites of food but I'm still hungry.

Can you help me please?

Does any kind of food make you feel pukish? Have you tried eating foods that tend to settle the stomach, like soda crackers?

You might want to go slow like start eating soda crackers with things that don't make you think of hurling. Then slowly build from there.
