Sometimes I have no appetite but last few days I have felt a hunger feeling even after eating. Could this be anxiety playing up?

I suppose it's possible, but I'd say it's more likely that you just have a good appetite. Nothing to worry about. I can eat all day long and I never feel satisfied for very long, even after eating too much.

Sometimes, after eating a large meal, I'll feel hungry just a couple of hours later, even if I feel rather full right after finishing my meal.

It's never been something I've worried about. It's just one of those things.

One problem I have is if I feel hungry and not eaten until late I go into a panic anxiety attack and even after eating it takes me a while to feel better again anybody else have this and what triggers your anxiety attacks?

For some people food is like a safety thing. If that was the case and you stopped them from eating, it would cause some form of reaction from them. Some might panic. Needing the food. Others might get angry. Depends on how you see your food in relation to your mental health. Does it make you feel good when you eat? More energy. Relaxed. People with depression can eat for comfort. Others won't eat much at all.

I do not think so, it could relate to stress though. Depression can also do this. Seek professional help and let them diagnose you.

I can eat a lot and feel hungry less than an hour later, as if I hadn't eaten at all.

I worry that I am burning off the energy by feeling anxious perhaps this is my hunger worry making me feel worse if I am hungry? I am always worrying about how I feel and very rarely feel relaxed I feel most anxious at night.

The symptom of feeling hungry went away for about a week after I seen the therapist. However it's come back as the same old worry came up like "Maybe I will die of this hunger/weak feeling?" I seem to be very worried about this lately and it gets followed by the symptom then my anxiety says maybe the hunger is something worse? Like a vicious cycle. The hunger arrives when I check do I feel hungry and grouchy? Is it possible for these symptoms to magically appear?

I also worry this is going to be a pattern with my anxiety at the moment and I may have to have this symptom? I remember first noticing this symptom again about June. Why would I be getting this symptom in my anxiety?
