Anorexia nervosa side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Anorexia nervosa side effects


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.
179856 tn?1333547362 t know anything about Portia. I had no idea she suffered from anorexia nervosa. I assumed she had anorexia - eating disorder from any cause - and that is why I assumed the anorexia resulted from her cirrhosis. Now, that I have read the gossip/Oprah stuff I lean more towards Willy's opinion.
Avatar f tn However, in my 28 year of clinical experience, I understand it as a subset of Anorexia Nervosa. This is my professional opinion. The underlying dynamics are quite similar to what we have seen in anorexia for years. It's only in the recent years as our society has focused on pure, organic, and raw foods has this new obessive compulsive form of restriction emerged and is has now been coined orthorexia.
Avatar f tn Self evaluation is unduly influenced by body shape and weight. The disturbance does not occur exclusively during episodes of anorexia nervosa. Type Purging type: During the current episode of bulimia nervosa, the person has regularly engaged in self-induced vomiting or the misuse of laxatives, diuretics, or enemas.
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 n tn Hi iam a female of 24yrs i feel heaviness and dizziness whenever i move my head in space (side to side) i dont whats the problem is the problem is with my vertebral artery or is it anorexia. Pl. guide me as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn If you have eating behavior not clearly defined as anorexia or bulimia, its called Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified or EDNOS. I want to tell you that you are a very strong person to recognize this and that you want to change it. That is the first step. I'm not a professional, but I think you would benefit from talking to someone who can help you understand your habits and feelings of the loss of control.
Avatar m tn Is she scared to gain weight? Is she obsessive about her body? If so, these are signs of anorexia nervosa. Sometimes when someone doesn't eat for a while the stomach gets smaller and a person can feel full faster. This can happen even for a person who does not show signs of or have an eating disorder. Is the reason she hasn't been eating much lately because she feels sick, or does she feel sick because she hasn't been eating much lately?
Avatar f tn Dear littleem, Do not blame yourself for your PCOS. Research shows that females diagnosed with anorexia nervosa had their polycystic ovary disease symptoms prior to weight loss. Their body mass index was higher when their menses stopped. In addition, their LH and estrogen levels were higher than those adolescents with anorexia only. PCOS occurs in 10% of females during reproductive age. The cause is still unknown. For more information about anorexia, visit the bella vita website. Dr.
348629 tn?1212325673 That being said, some of the side effects are the same as w/d side effects, ie., anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, and anorexia (poor appetite, not anorexia nervosa). Since you're just starting on the med., at the same time as weaning off, you may (or may not) experience these, and you may be uncomfortable with them. If you experience them, I'd call your doctor to talk about it, as he/she may be able to help in one of many ways. Firefaery's right about all the antidepress.
Avatar f tn If she is depressed it also would need to be treated side by side. Please try and see a therapist as soon as possible. Patience and determination are very important while handling an anorexic person. I sincerely hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn I have stage 2 cirrhosis due to autoimmune hepatitis. Took azathioprine many years (not now due to side effects) and have history of leukemia in my family. My blood counts are pretty low. Lower than they have been. I feel not well. I can almost tell when my body is really, really not right - and feel in some ways similar to how I felt when my autoimmune hepatitis was diagnosed. The oddest sensation is in my bones.
Avatar f tn I’m gaining weight on the abilify and I cannot take anymore. I am recovering from anorexia nervosa and have been at a healthy weight for a few months now so the added weight is unbearable. My question is if excessive sweating is a withdrawal side effect that anyone here has experienced and if so how long does this last? It’s really bad and I keep taking showers but I’m sweating so bad under my arms. It is disgusting. Also how long do Abilify withdrawals last?
Avatar m tn Vanessa, from The Migraines and Headaches Forum suggests I should have a cervical scan done. On ending my post, I must admit I suffered from Anorexia Nervosa at around the age of ten and began noticing my symptoms a few years later.
Avatar m tn I was wondering if her doctors have considered issues like bulimia/ anorexia in her. Other than this issues that may need to be considered are recurrent infections, food allergies/ intolerance, parasitic infestations etc. Without a clinical evaluation it would be inappropriate on my side to comment further. I would suggest a detailed evaluation by a gastroenterologist for the above mentioned possibilities. After a cause is diagnosed, it can be managed accordingly. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn * Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia. For more information, see the topic Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia Nervosa. * Increased exercise. Missed periods are common in endurance athletes. * Emotional stress. * Illness. * Travel. * Medicines such as hormonal birth control methods, which may cause lighter, less frequent, more frequent, or skipped periods or no periods at all. * Hormone problems.
Avatar n tn Is there a table or spot in your house that you can go to eat that doesnt include any of those stressors? Anorexia nervosa is literally "anxious appetite loss"(or something like that). I am not saying that you are anorexic, but if you continue not to eat you are at risk for meeting medical criteria for anorexia nervosa. So as I was saying, find the most peaceful spot in your house to eat.
Avatar n tn I have a friend right now that is suffering from Anorexia Nervosa. She is at the state where she is in need of immediate medical attention, and i am fighting for that right now. She is only 5 feet tall, 17 years old and wieghs only 69 pounds. She was never really fat, but that is how she sees herself because of a disorder called body dysmorphia. I hope I at least helped a little with your question.
Avatar f tn / Also as a result of these events I have been diagnosed with Insomnia, Depression and (unfortunately) Anorexia Nervosa. The only diagnostic that I am currently struggling with is Insomnia. I am under a great deal of stress due to some issues with family business. I am currently not on medication and I am trying to quit smoking. Any idea on what I might be going through right now as well as any suggestions will be gratefully appreciated. Thank You! S.
Avatar n tn I want to go on reductil to lose weight as am over weight and getting very depressed about it. Could anyone tell me what the side effects are and is anxiousness one of them? Also i am taking the anti-depressant cipralex (escitalopram) do you know if it is ok to take them together. Please reply if you know anything i am rather desperate to start taking reductil so i can lose weight and start living again!
Avatar f tn Another risk is being extremely thin or emaciated (for example, from anorexia nervosa). Systemic conditions such as diabetic neuropathy or polyarteritis nodosa can also cause damage to the common peroneal nerve. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (hereditary sensorimotor neuropathy) is an inherited disorder that affects all nerves, with peroneal nerve dysfunction apparent early in the disorder.
Avatar m tn Celexa is used to treat depression. This drug is also used to treat eating disorders (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa) and other mental conditions (obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder). All the other medications you mentioned are from the same family(SSRI's).
