Chest pain bulimia

Common Questions and Answers about Chest pain bulimia


Avatar f tn Hi there. I don't know if I should tell you what it could be, because I'm not a doctor, and don't want to scare you and because I think you probably know if you have been seeing your doctor. Unless she didn't tell you what bulimia could do to you? I also have bulimia but hate hate HATE the fact that I have it and really regret bring such a horrible disease into my life, because it has caused SO many problems for myself and my family. I'll tell you a few of them.
Avatar f tn i mean, being bulimic itself is bad enough but since last week ive been having a sharp pain around my right chest area? like almost on the side, around the bottom of my right breast and i cant think of anything else that couldve caused it. i was sick for about a month and i was coughing a LOT but i got a lot better about a week ago. that could be it tho.. but ive also been purging a lot lately.. it randomly hurts.
Avatar m tn My name is Phaye, and I have been having chest pains for a couple of weeks now. I went to the doctor with heart palpitations, trouble breathing, and chest pain. I also have an eating disorder that has given me health problems in the past. My doctor sent me for blood work, and an EKG. My blood work came back normal, but my EKG came back borderline with Right Ventricular Conduction Delay. He sent me for an ECHO.
Avatar f tn Recently I am being woken up in the middle of the night, my chest feels heavy (no pain), my extremities seem to go cold then my heart races until I can calm down, take deep breaths and slow it down. What is happening? Should I be worried? It is occuring every other night. I am also having palpitations when I climb up more than 2 flights of stairs. I know it is from the Bulimia and I am trying not to purge everything I eat. I am also drinking vitamin water with added potassium.
Avatar n tn About three weeks ago, I started suffering from debilitating migraines all day long, as well as dizziness and nausea when I stand up or am active. My chest also feels like my heart is going to beat out of my chest and its hard to breathe. Since I am a sophomore in college it has been harder to go to classes because I am always sick to my stomach and am not able to sleep or eat anything most of the time. When I do eat, I get severe chest palpatations, as well as when I am very hungry.
Avatar n tn My question is related to bulimia - during middle/high school and college I struggled pretty seriously with bulimia, totaling roughly 10 years of my life. I was in a regular pattern of bingeing/purging (usually once per day). At some point after college, I read about how dangerous this can be to the heart, and it scared me right out of the habit. I've never done it again (it's been about 5 years) and will never do it again.
Avatar f tn To get to the point, I've had an eating disorder for a few years, since I was almost 11, and now I'm 15. It's varied from anorexia to bulimia, but these past few years its centered around binging and purging. For the past few months, I've found blood in my vomit. Its a dark brown and it resembles coffee grounds. I've also been having sharp pains in my abdominal and chest, which usually don't last long at all. Lately, though, the chest pains have been lingering.
Avatar n tn I have been a struggling with bulimia on and off for about 10 years. More recently, I am suffering with anxiety pain in my ride side and insomnia collectively. Could this be related to the long term effects of bulimia and what should I do first.
Avatar n tn i am 21 and suffer with bulimia, i get palpitations quite a lot, especially when i purge (vomit) but more recently i have been getting a dull ache in my chest- should i worry or is it anxiety or something.
Avatar m tn Hello all- It's been about 3 months since i was on this site last- at the time I was strougling with an oxy habit tha was eating me apart. I'd be lying if I said I kicked it completely, but that's no longer my main concern. I gotta a whole 'nother prob that is equally destroying me- it's an amphetamine addiction that I'm finally coming to terms with...coupled with a lotta benzo and alcohol to off-set the effects- and...
Avatar f tn I suffer with bulimia and I feel the affects it has on my body (irregular heart beat, chest pains at times, get out of breath easily). What do you suggest I do for going on the treadmill? Should I start off with just walking? I'd like to be able to run eventually.

785277 tn?1244324809 How long would someone have Bulimarexia (cycles of anorexia followed by cycles of bulimia) until they start to have teeth problems? What kind of teeth problems happen other than decay, and is there anything I can do to lessen the strain on the teeth?
Avatar m tn I'm 28 and I have joint pain in my finger joints and I feel it in my wrists sometimes too. And in the digits of my feet (I think). I have no RF in my blood and the doctor said just take Ibuprofen. I am slightly over weight because of bulimia. I've had gluten sensitivity problems (makes me sluggish and hungry). AND labyrinthitus in the past months. No thyroid problems. Not diabetic. Feeling it might be Fibromyalgia ? I'm lost.
Avatar n tn I havent found any blood after throwing up or felt pain but something feels a bit out of place when I swallow now. I have cut down the throwing up to once every five days and would love to give up completely but feel like I will go mad if I cant binge and then get sick. The other thing is that I didnt realise that there may be a chance of getting eosophegal cancer from having bulimia and this really worries me sick.

Avatar f tn I had bulimia for about 3 years. About a year after I finally stopped my health has been going down the drain with random nerve pain. I do have eye floaters when looking at computer monitors which are kinda annoying. I don't get dizziness, or any form of blurred / double vision. I get constant head pain, leg pain and sometimes my arms and hands. I've had Blood tests done, and Ive had a physical Neurology examination done and they put it down to anxiety.
Avatar f tn Anyway, last night I was kept awake all night from leg cramps. Every five or ten minutes I would get a shooting pain at the back of my right leg (the calf). It still hasn't gone away and I've been experiencing this all day. It only lasts for a couple of seconds but it's really painful. I don't know if this could be a symptom of the ED of if it's just a trapped nerve, irritaed muscle or anything really.
Avatar n tn Except for my teenage and college years, when I struggled on and off with bulimia for roughly 10 years. I stopped completely about 5 years ago, and have never had another episode. Last year, I suddenly started experiencing heart palpitations. I went through the whole workup - Holter monitor, stress test, echo, cardiac MRI, and then another 2-week event monitor. The doc said I'm having PVC's and a few runs of NSVT, but otherwise my heart looks structurally fine.
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!
1246367 tn?1271225330 Your post sounds like what happened to me the first time I was in recovery from my eating disorder (about 4 years ago), and I dont want to sound discouraging but I relapsed soon after back into full blown bulimia. I had the same idea, its getting warmer outside and my body image and voice of bulimia is telling me I need to exercise and avoid food.
