I Never Get the Feeling of Hunger

i have never in my life (that i can remember) been hungry. i know this sounds weird...i just fill my stomach to make it stop hurting not because i want food. this is actually harder to explain than i previously thought... i guess the best way is: if it weren't for feeling sick i would never eat because i would have no urge to. sometimes i go for a few days without eating for this reason. i have "googled" this symptom to no avail. hopefully someone on here can help out with what it could be. any ideas? maybe it is just a mental thing or perhaps my body does not make enough of a certian enzyme or hormone...

I find that when I eat less for a while, my stomach shrinks and I lose my appetite. Maybe if you eat more, your appetite will get a little stronger.
