Common Questions and Answers about Anorexia symptoms diarrhea


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 m tn Ethacrynic acid has the listed side effects of possibly causing GI irritation, diarrhea, anorexia, abdominal pain, and dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) but does say how frequent these side effects are but side effects are usually mild and not very common (usually less than 10%). Lasix (Furosemide) has the listed side effects of possibly causing anorexia, constipation, cramping, diarrhea, nausea, oral and gastric irritation, and vomiting and again does not list the frequency.
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 n tn When I was smaller I took some OTC cough syrup that purposely gave you diarrhea to cure the cold my family had. It worked and everyone who took it was no longer sick. A couple weeks ago I was vaccinated with 3 vaccines and then I took a extreme HARDCORE laxative (4 days later after my vaccination) that gave me diarrhea 7 times and which lasted for 7 hours and now I'm wondering if I flushed the dead virus before I was immunized to meningitis, hepatitis A , tdap.
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 f tn Over the last 6 months to a year I have experienced intermittent diarrhea and rectal bleeding as well as occasional abdominal cramping. Most recent episode experienced diarrhea, bleeding, fever, severe cramping, weight loss, and anorexia. Initial stool cultures were negative. Colonoscopy revealed mild protitis and grade I hemorrhoids. Cultures done at this time came back positive for campylobacter, greater than two weeks after initial onset.
Avatar f tn Most recent episode experienced diarrhea, bleeding, fever, severe cramping, weight loss, arthritis pains and anorexia. Initial stool cultures were negative. Diarrhea contains mucus but no blood. From recent symptoms of ongoing bleeding, it seems more related to a fissure rather than hemorrhoids and Anusol HC does not help with bleeding or irritation. Colonoscopy revealed mild proctitis and grade I hemorrhoids.
Avatar n tn When you say that she displays many symptoms of anorexia (in spite of eating three meals/day), what do you mean? What are the symptoms you are noticing?
766752 tn?1234946743 Hi there, Unfortunately, in recovery from anorexia it's not really uncommon to have these feelings, and physical symptoms. I know it makes it much, much harder, but it's just part of it. When one's body has been starved for so long, it has to "readjust" once it starts getting food again. It WILL pass though and when your body gets used to the idea of getting food, and learns to trust you again, this will not continue.
Avatar f tn Yes, that is what it is. You are showing anorexic symptoms and it will only get worse. Talk to a counselor at school, your doctor, or another trusted adult and have them refer you to a therapist experienced with eating disorders. Your ED is related to how you feel about yourself and you need help working through both so you can go on to live a good life. Please do it soon.

Avatar f tn irritability, anxiety, backache, joint pain, weakness, abdominal cramps, insomnia, nausea, anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea, or increased blood pressure, respiratory rate, or heart rate. To prevent the development of an opioid abstinence syndrome,you should decrease your daily dose by 25% to 50% per day.
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 f tn Dear Meg34, You can go home. Colleges honor Anorexia as a medical withdrawal. With your current symptoms, you need support. You probably need an eating disorder treatment program: outpatient day treatment, residential treatment or possibly inpatient treatment. Go to your campus’ health center for your physical symptoms. Ask to speak with a counselor at school who has experience with eating disorders. The health center and counselor can help assist you to get the proper treatment.
Avatar f tn Anyone with a resting heart rate over 100 should be checked by a doctor, if just over 100, say even 120, I'd say in most cases it can be done on a non-emergency scheduled basis - depending on other symptoms. In your case and in the absence of any specific knowledge about anorexia I can't make a connection, but I suspect anorexia puts stress on one's body and that could be at least part of the driver for the above normal HR.
Avatar f tn I have had chronic diarrhea (8-15 times a day) since July 2007. I was diagnosed with gastric dumping in may of 2008 and then with gastroparesis in Jan. 09. However, I still am having diarrhea 8-15 times a day. I also have tachycardia, orthostasis edema, stomach distention, new/developing food allergies, borderline low TSH, no appetite, joint pain, and weight gain/maintaing weight.
Avatar f tn I was wondering about the medical and social differences between patients with anorexia and patients with orthorexia, or if generally they are felt to be the same disease?
