5061022 tn?1363018223 Hey girl! I also have an eating disorder and have since I was a child at the age of 6 I started counting calories. I'm finally doing better with it. You just need to have faith and have the support. Keeping a positive frame of mind is very important. You got this! Try getting back on schedule with your eating habits. That's #1 concern right now. When you start doing better with that than you can start worrying about exercising. Your a beautiful girl. I'm here for you.
Avatar n tn Anorexia is the highest death rate of all Mental Illnesses and for those between the ages of 15-24 Anorexia is 12X highest death rate for all other causes of death. If she passes out in your presence, call 911. If her parents are unwilling to get her help, call child protective services on them. You can call anonymously. For more information on anorexia, visit the bella vita website. Best, Dr.
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 m tn // Diagnosis of eating disorders requires you to step outside of it and ask for help. The best place to start may be to have a physical and express your eating practices and concerns over your weight at that time. If your physician agrees you have an unhealth relationship with food, they may suggest the next step for help.
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!
Avatar n tn My step daughter had her first child one year ago. Prior to the pregnancy she was challenged to lose weight always a size 13-15. After the birth, she dropped weight rapidly now wearing a size 2-0 in less than 9 months after the birth. She craves sweets but does not eat healthy or exercise at all so the weight lose has shocked the family. We often question whether she is taking drugs and she denies it. What could cause the rapid weight loss and sweet cravings?
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 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.

Avatar m tn Anorexia - lack of appetite causes fever sometimes.
Avatar n tn I feel really defeated because I have been trying to add more protein, calories, and carbs to my diet, but with little results. I look like I have Anorexia, TB, or HIV when I don't!! What should I do? Do you even know? They say it's from rapid weight loss and malnutrition, but what should I do??
Avatar f tn It is well known that vitamin B12 deficiency causes developmental delay and brain atrophy in infants and children. This has been reported in medical journals and texts since the 1960’s. The medical community (pediatricians, neurologists) is not routinely checking children who present with the first concern of developmental delay for B12 deficiency which is problematic and a clinical error.
Avatar n tn t know anything about your physical condition, but it might be worth asking your doctor if there is any physical causes for your lack of appetite and if there is anything medical that can be done about it. You are right that in order to get healthy you have to eat regularly. Perhaps smaller meals more often might be easier for you.

1575110 tn?1334664635 I just usually vocalize it I never make plans or anything but I have harassed a couple of no bodys just because I felt like they needed to come to a realization of how negatively they have affected my life. One person had throat cancer, the other has anorexia, the other anorexia, and the other a crack head. I feel so bad.
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.

1247613 tn?1268785691 I live in Japan, and it is hard for me to get certain health care or prescriptions. My mother sends me my old prescriptions from the states, I am currently taking minocycline and budeprion xl, and last year, I had a kidney infection due to serious dehydration from anorexia. I've recovered from anorexia and have not had kidney problems since, but recently, I've had serious insomnia and anxiety/fear due to the idea that I may get that kidney infection again.
Avatar f tn Other causes of cold extremities with bluish discoloration are hypothyroidism, anorexia, Addison’s disease, adrenal causes like pheochromocytoma, anemia, Buerger’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome and Raynaud’s disease. Raynaud’s disease is a disease of the blood vessels in which blood can't get to the surface of the skin and the affected areas turn white and blue. Please discuss these possibilities with her doctor. Hope this helps.
