Common Questions and Answers about Anorexia tips laxatives


Avatar f tn First of, I tend to have bad eating habits. When I was younger I was dignosed with EDNOS, and then with anorexia. I would starve myself and purge what I did eat, and I would also abuse laxatives. Lately I have been having those problems again. I'm sure that all isn't helping my other problems. I am constinpated, all the time. Without laxatives, I maybe move my bowls once a week, sometimes longer.
Avatar f tn How many times do you have to puke yourself to be considered bulimic? Does anorexia or bulimia cause hair loss? And is there any possible way that any of this could cause my hands to shake?
6811971 tn?1385557755 This is not a question, just a few tips for those who are on the road to recovering from an eating disorder. Just a little background on me: I suffered from Anorexia for six years of my life and have been recovered for twelve years now. For me, I experienced some gas and bloating. This can be quite stressful as it makes one feel full and gaining weight. I found that mixing some natural ginger in a tea or water helped. Also, digestion was a little slow for me.
1223598 tn?1289968459 I have had dual diagnosis of Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge eating, and over exercising which goes in atrocious circles since i was 13 and I am now 21 years old. No other professionals have been able to answer this and I have checked everywhere. The problem: every time i attempt to recover and introduce food into my system, I can usually eat small stabled meals for a few weeks until I become horribly sick.

Avatar n tn The EKG findings could be from an electrolyte or mineral imbalance (which is very common with eating disorders) You really need to see someone about your bulimia as it can be very hard and dangerous on your body, also I am sure you use things like laxatives as well which over time can cause changes to your GI tract.
1701851 tn?1338085791 I have had problems with constipation and slow digestion, for several years. I have a habit of self-medicating with laxatives, and have had a history of eating disorders (bulimia, EDNOS,anorexia). Info- I'm 25 years old, female. For the most part I consider myself recovered, from said eating disorders. However I still struggle at times. If too stressed, etc, I still have a habit of purging, and or restricting. I also admit, I do abuse laxatives, and I have for a long time, off and on.
5061022 tn?1363018223 I have recently removed myself from my fitness pal and tumblr because it is an ED breading ground! It is where I would go to get tips and encouragement. I am trying to get away from doing it as I have had it under control for the past year and it was recently triggered again in January. I have been dealing with it since the 8th grade and I am now a college junior....its a constant battle and I hate it....I am trying so hard right now to fight losing weight the right way....
Avatar f tn I recently started taking (mineral oil) laxatives in an attempt to lose weight. Which was probably not such a good idea. After a few days of taking more than then the reccomended amount , when i went to the bathroom an orange oily liquid came out (along with urine and stuff) So, what does this mean? Is it bad? Or no big deal? Thanks.
Avatar n tn I am a 20 yr old female with a history of eating disorders, first anorexia which developed into bulemia using laxatives. It's gotten to the point of dependency. I get really bloated and constipated if I go without it. I know I can cause permanent damage if I dont stop using them, but I hate this disgusting bloated feeling. How do I wean myself off without having to feel fat and disgusting?
1222635 tn?1366396286 Ellop :)... Taking Laxitives can be the start of a Type of Bulimia. Bulimia is where you make your self loe weight by either making your self sick with either your fingers down your throat or taking laxitives, This will start off a few time a week, then become a few times a day... and can make you seriously ill... Seriously... Both Bulimia and Anorexia can also have an impact and stop you ovulating... Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) people get mixed up and assume you have it...
Avatar n tn I had anorexia and then bulimia and now I'm stuck bouncing between the two so far my stomach swells with any solid food or just water bloats looks like an African child's then if I take laxatives because I've abused them so much from purging I can't go naturally and they are no Longer effective how do I eat without feeling guilty basically I have to learn how to eat all over again I just desperately need balance
Avatar f tn 40 weeks today. Any tips on speeding up labour I've been really active but nothing seems to work. Getting bored of being indoors can't wait any longer. Any tips please!!!!!
Avatar n tn m nearing 14 weeks in my pregnancy and yes, I know your not supposed to take laxatives during pregnancy, but the other methods my obstetrician has given me, eating more fruits and vegetables, adding more fiber to my diet, drinking lots of water... none of that has ever worked. I've even tried miralax and that doesn't work. The normal pills are the only thing keeping me "going". Not any of the aforementioned or ducoset or whatever stool softened was mentioned.
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.
1017480 tn?1303107824 I am 26 years old, 5'4", and 90pounds. I have suffered from Anorexia and Bulimia for the past 5 years. I recently have been experiencing severe weeping edema all over my body. My doctor has done blood tests showing everything is normal and a heart ultra sound also showing to be normal. No idea what is going on... any ideas?
Avatar f tn The bloating stopped but the loud flatulence and being gassy is still there. I tried fiber supplements, and laxatives and digestion enzyme. But nothing worked. My stomach makes weird noises and then I pass loud gas. I don't know what to do. I'm very embarrassed.

Avatar f tn Hi helpxx. I, too, was addicted to laxatives off and on for years. For me, it was because of an eating disorder. Trust me when I say this, using laxatives to loose or control weight loss is an illusion. You do loose mostly water and dehydrate yourself. Now, I'm no Dr. However, prolonged use can cause your bowels to be "lazy". So here are some tips to help physiologically and psychologically: -Where you are pregnant, always consult your Dr. Before doing anything.
483733 tn?1326798446 With any obstruction, waste movement is slowed from moving through the body so some patients throw laxatives at that problem. Not a good idea. Long-term those laxatives will only make things worse. Short term, stimulant laxatives will increase the pain tremendously as the muscular walls of the intestines strain uselessly against the obstruction. You're better off staying with small daily amounts of water soluble fiber to maintain some form of regularity.
1223598 tn?1289968459 Okay, this community has been helpful to me in my recovery, I am grateful for Zoe responding to my first question at the beginning of my recovery from Anorexia, Bulimia and Over exercising for 11 years. I am fighting strong this time, so far I am doing awesome. I have never come this far in my life, and i know i am going to make it this time. I am going to overcome it all.
