Avatar m tn Im thinking this is anorexia induced by anxiety? Is that possible? What could I start to do about this? Anyone else share a similar experience? My period is late and I am starting to believe it could be from this problem. I have also recently had a copper IUD removed that has caused me MANY HEALTH PROBLEMS and i believe that could have contributed to my health anxiety as well Any similar stories would be appreciated!!!?
Avatar n tn Dear kate306, Your gastrointestinal system could definitely be thrown off from your anorexia. Your current anxiety could be the culprit for your diarrhea. Anxiety and Anorexia often go hand in hand. Seeking medical attention for your diarrhea is recommended. Getting to the root of your anxiety and decreasing your anxiety is critical. For more information on anorexia, visit the bella vita website. Best, Dr.
Avatar f tn Yes you can have stomach pain along with many other symptoms. Anorexia and Anorexia Nervosa are actually two different things.. Anorexia is simply not eating, it doesn't necessarily mean you don't WANT to eat, just a lack of eating for whatever reason. Anorexia Nervosa (what people are usually talking about when they use the term Anorexia) is when you don't eat because you think you are fat, or you have a strong fear of gaining weight.
Avatar f tn I have suffered depression, anxiety and anorexia for 17 years, i have recently relapsed on the anorexia and my mood is quickly getting worse. I feel useless and helpless, like i want to just give up, run away from everything, or worse. I don't know what to do any more.
918035 tn?1274644533 You have many symptoms of anorexia. Anorexia is not about the food, it's about underlying issues that causes a person to go away from food. I will advise you to speak to an adult. Hopefully, you could talk to your mom or dad. You need to get some professional help and support. You need to see a medical doctor just to check on your overall medical condition and growth.
Avatar n tn Dear ny77, Your inconsistent eating triggered by anxiety and stress can be one cause that precipitates anorexia. Other possible causes could be a loss of a loved one relationally or by death, physical illness, life transition (e.g., going away to college), sport involvement which focuses on physical appearance or emotional, physical or sexual abuse.

Avatar f tn Again high pulse is seen in anemia, hyperthyroidism, fever, low blood sugar, anxiety and panic disorder, heart causes like sinus tachycardia and palpitations, alcohol, coffee, effect of certain drugs etc. Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar n tn Low blood pressure could be due to anemia, dehydration, drug induced etc. Anorexia and bulimia are both eating disorders that have been associated with a poor self-perception and body image. They can lead to depression and even suicidal tendencies.Depression, thyroid disorders, anxiety stress all can lead to such feelings.Hypoxia, vascular problems, Coarctation of aorta and hypoglycemia are few other causes of syncopal attacks. It is better to seek medical help at the earliest.
Avatar m tn How do you know that Anorexia causes pain all over the body? I mean i'm sure it does, but this is aout my brother. He is 15 years old and he has been struggling with this eating disorder for a few months now, probably 6 or so. I also have struggled with this disorder myself, but I'm over it now. I just dont' know what to do about him, because he has like, no muscle mass left on him!
1247613 tn?1268785691 The pain of the kidney infection scared me out of anorexia, to say the least. The anxiety had become extreme to the point of serious panic attacks. My mother sent me something called lorazepam, she tells me that if I have an attack, I should take it. I wanted to ask a doctor's opinion before I actually take it at the time of my panic attacks which usually occurs at night.
Avatar m tn Unintentional and unexplained weight loss is definitely not good. There are many causes like worms in stool, depression, anorexia nervosa, AIDS, cancers especially colon cancers, drug abuse, infections and loss of appetite. Loss of appetite can again be due to certain medications, drug abuse, depression, AIDS, acute and chronic infections, cancers and hypothyroidism. Either you do not eat well or there is increased metabolism as in hyperthyroid states, HIV, cancer etc.
1190847 tn?1287363025 The causes for Trichotillomania can include genetics or neuorchemical imbalances, so if you are having issues with anxiety then pulling your hair could very well be caused by the anxiety. The anxiety may have caused it, but again the hair pulling is another disorder that developed and also needs to be treated. Just like how a lot of people with anxiety problems also have OCD. Both disorders need to be treated.

971443 tn?1282560078 Your not alone, there are many of us that suffer from anxiety/panic attacks including me. One real fact about anxiety/panic attacks is that, when someone has an incident that triggers high anxiety or a panic attack, later, if you dwell on it too much, just thinking about the incident or some variation of it can cause one to have another anxiety/panic attack. Since you hallucination was triggered by a drug, chances are that you will not start to randomly hallucinate. but to answer your question.

931175 tn?1244457804 , low potassium, acid reflex, stomach problems, tear in esophagus, etc.) In addtition, stress, anxiety and depression could make it difficult to take in much food. In individuals with anorexia, these emotions can be shut down by eating less and less. They also could make it difficult to eat. In any event, your friend needs a medical exam with blood work and psychiatric/psycholigical evaluation. There is hope. In having a clear diagnosis, treatment is available.
Avatar f tn If there is more hair loss than this, the first cause we look at is diet. It has been long known that anorexia causes hair loss. Your 400 calories on alternate days is flirting with an anorexia-like diet and is most likely stressing your body. Rather than cut your long locks, look to have a balanced diet each and every day. Good luck.
639751 tn?1223570892 Anorexia is a disease with trauma, severe anxiety, body dysmorphic disorder, extreme fear, self loathing, and irrational behaviors. When you have anorexia, you are both terrifyed of, and obsessed with food. I used to cook so much for my boyfriend, his friends, my family, etc. I would look online at recipes. If I was hungry, I would avoid any place with food. Anorexia made me miss my 8th grade year, and much of Highschool.
