During the day I just an not hungry. I will go a day eating and drinking barely anything. Do I have a eating disorder or is this a serious medical issue?
I’m not sure it’s a eating disorder because I don’t think I’m fat. I’m almost bone skinny and I can see my heartbeat through my chest.
I need help? Should I go see a doctor?

Maybe good idea to visit the doctor and get a high calorie drink substitute. It may be that because you haven't eaten in quite a while your stomach has shrank and won't tolerate much solid food. You could also look at going to a nutritionist and seeing about developing a diet plan.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.It looks like anorexia and it needs to be evaluated. behavioural therapies and low doses of antidepressants will help.

Take care
