Trig Anyone ever experienced this?

I was never diagnosed with an eating disorder. Even though I fit h e criteria of suffering from anorexia. I stop eating. I started feeling dizzy and cold all the time especially in the summer because I had lost so much weight. I should have been check into a clinic. I am now where I am supposed to be. But now I am concern of the physical damaged that is done to my body because I m now suffering from physical health problem. Anyone ever experienced this?

I was very blessed in that the 2 major anorexia periods in my life which were when I was 43-45 & then again 51-54 I had absolutely no physical damage come from it. It was a miricle actually considering how low my weight got to & the fact I was hospitalized medically many times during those periods of time.

Hope you are ok.

I'm sorry this has adversely affected your health. When I went through periods of not eating I passed out a few times. I know it can be scary when we don't know what's happening to us. I didn't see doctors at all back then but now it takes me a lot to go to one. Yet, I am starting to see them again. I hope you will get yourself checked out by a doctor. Then you will know how your health is and maybe what you can do to get better.

I passed out often.....even in a horse corral. That scared the horses. First time I had anorexia that landed me in treatment & in & out of the medical hospital for several years needing a central line & IV feeding my period never stopped (43-45). Second time my weight didn't get as low as the first & only had one central line with IV feeding but my period did stop. Several years before menopause hot flashes hit (which only lasted less than a year also). The last time I kept getting dehydrated & would end up needing IV fluids in the ER.

Now I live alone on a farm that requires me to be well to do the care necessary. The grief of losing my soul mate doggie on Sunday has really messed with my appetite & I have to be careful because it is things like this that have triggered my anorexia in the past

I completely understand. I was emotionally and physically abuse by mom who allow me to be abuse by my brother. I stopped eating. I should have been in the hospital.

In treatment all they harped on was that I had body image issues. What they NEVER touched on was the REAL CAUSE which was the stress of everything I was going through & no one even thought to consider my bad marriage because it looked good from the outside. Ah....what we really learn years down the road when everything comes to light & starts making total sense to us.

If you're not feeling well, Buffy01, I think you need to go to a doctor and see how it goes from there. Hopefully that will help. I'm sorry you're struggling with this, I know it's hard. Please stay safe and take care of yourself. Let us know how it goes. Sending many hugs to you
