I have not eaten days, I am not hungry and am losing weight

Customer Question

I have not eaten for 10 days, I am not hungry and am losing weight at an alarming rate. Whatever I eat, goes straight through me, so I am living on water.
I have had IBS for a number of years but NEVER as bad as this, there is NO blood in my faeces.
All the GP's that I know must be on holiday as it all cover GP's and I feel weak from lack of food.
