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 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 tend to be the same as leftcoastchick - doctor is the person you need, I know anorexia needs serious help and counselling but id also wonder if it is anorexia which has fairly specific symptoms and behaviours as opposed to not eating which is indeed possibly an attempt at suicide. Is the person physically ill?
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 m tn //www.webmd.com/mental-health/eating-disorders/anorexia-nervosa/mental-health-anorexia-nervosa#1. 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 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 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.
554703 tn?1227497870 I never had an eating disorder per say, but years ago during a hard time with my Ex-husband, I didn't eat much and when I did, I only ate things like rice and ham. I lost 39 pounds in 5 weeks and woke up one morning with my heart beating all over the place and was rushed to the ER. Long story short, I was told I was close to joining Karen Carpenter. Karen died from "heartbeat irregularities brought on by chemical (electrolyte) imbalances associated with anorexia nervosa.
701581 tn?1279136038 It may be the doctor in Miami felt the previous positive ANA test(s) was/were sufficient (provided that isn't one of the things that came out negative in latter testing?) There are doctors that are concerned about costs when ordering tests, so perhaps she was being judiciously frugal when it came to ANA? I think if you feel you have the symptoms of lupus, it is worth pursuing getting that re-tested- to see what comes out as two out of three- positive or negative for the illness.
Avatar n tn When children do not eat for awhile, they cry because they are hungry. Symptoms of anorexia is hair loss (lots of it), development of peach like body hair, bad teeth, emotional problems, stomach problems, heart problems, etc. She needs help. She will intitially be upset about it, but eventually she will get over it.
Avatar f tn I am 14 years old, and I am developing anorexia nervosa. DO NOT starve yourself, it can lead to anorexia which I can tell you will take over your life. I understand the pressure to be pretty/perfect/thin. It is a hard thing to deal with psychologically. Try to eat health, but make sure that you are getting a health amount of calories- again, don't starve yourself. Try to exercise 20 minutes a day, and as time goes by ramp up the number of minutes you spend on moderate physical activity.
Avatar f tn 1 Hypothyroidism,2 diabetes mellitus,3 hepatic diseases, anorexia nervosa, and renal diseases may be associated with carotenemia unassociated with the ingestion of carotene.4 Carotenemia may also be associated with the ingestion of carotene-rich nutritional supplements. I turned my son's nose orange when he was a baby because I was feeding him too many carrots. Carrot Juice also has alot of sugar in it. You are definately drinking too much carrot juice. Everything in moderation.
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 n tn Is she still not eating? I hope you are not seeing the beginning of anorexia nervosa - nine years of age is not too young for this mental health issue to occur. What did the psychologist say?
Avatar f tn Hello LexyLex2015, my name is Noelle. I am also 14 years old, and I am developing anorexia nervosa. DO NOT starve yourself, it can lead to anorexia which I can say will take over your life. I would suggest eating healthy foods, while making sure you have the necessary amount of calories. Along with eating health foods, try to exercise 20 minutes a day. As time goes by increase the amount of time you are spending on physical activity.

Avatar m tn Hi about three or so years ago I went through a long period of anorexia nervosa, I was checking labels, eating barely any fat foods, always feeling terrible if i aint something unhealthy, and on top of that running 10 miles and working out every day because I thought i was fat. Once then period ended, I immediately began to binge eat at every meal, and would get incredibly bloated and distended (pregnant).
Avatar f tn I am also 14, and I have also been struggling with anorexia nervosa for a while now. Please tell your guardian, or anyone you trust what you have been going through. I recommend talking to a counselor because I know there is WAY MORE to your story than you have told and that you have let on; these are not just surface problems. Try to eat three meals a day even if they are small. Just eat something for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
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 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.
