Unexplained weight loss
You’re shedding pounds, but you’re not trying to…what’s up with that? If you’re losing weight and can’t explain it (meaning you’ve lost 10 pounds or more in a 6-12 month period), there are many possible reasons, from the mundane to the potentially serious. Anything that stimulates your metabolism, including medications, an overactive thyroid, or anxiety, can potentially cause you to lose pounds. Even stimulants like caffeine or nicotine can cause weight loss. Conditions like Crohn’s, Addison’s, and celiac disease may lead to unexplained weight loss, too. Weight loss isn’t necessarily bad. But ask yourself: are you feeling hyper, very hot or cold, or more alert than usual? Did you recently add a new supplement or medication to your regimen? Do you have other symptoms that need addressing? Are you having trouble sleeping? If the answer is yes to any of those questions, it’s probably time to speak with your practitioner to find out what's going on. In some cases, the same conditions that cause weight gain can also cause weight loss (like anxiety, for instance), just to make it extra confusing. But this definitely isn’t a problem you need to figure out on your own, your practitioner can help you get to the bottom of it!

Naltrexone and fibromyalgia? I’ve heard some have success with this medication. I’m actually trying Contrave for help with weight loss and it’s partially formulated with Naltrexone. Not taking it for chronic pain but if it helped a little bit with that it wouldn’t be a bad thing
