Sickness or disorder?

Recommended Posts

Guest Midna

I have problems with eating, not because I care about weight, but because food often gives me stomach pains.

Being sick makes the pain stop instantly, so usually I have to force it out...

usually anything that could be called "a meal" makes me sick, while snacks are usually ok (especially sugary things)

I don't think this really counts as an eating disorder... or if it's just illness

I haven't ever heard of anything like this from anyone else so I don't know what to do.

It sounds like you have some type of physical problem and really need to see a doctor. There are a wide variety of gastrointestinal problems that need to be considered and eliminated before it can be classified as an ED. Please make an appointment soon.

I agree with Vicky

You need to see a Gastro Enterologist. It could be Celiac Sprue, It could be diverticulitis and a whole bunch of disorders my tired brain is not picking out right now. I worked as a Pathologist Assistant in Histo-Pathology for 18 years and tissue disease is what we duagnosed. Look, there are several disorders of the gastro-intestinal tract that can really hurt you if left untreated, so get diagnosed, please, for your sake.

Eating disorders are incredibly complex! They might start for any number of reasons, body image being just one of them. But, once they start to become entrenched patterns they develop into gastrointestinal problems that drive them even further from normal. It is often at this stage when we seek help for the secondary problems that we discover we have a greater problem.

I can't say for sure that you have ED, but you are feeling "sick" after meals which could be a sign of low motility in the upper GI causing you to purge. If I read your OP correctly. There are medications that can help with this problem and bring you back towards balance.

      Mine were painful for about eighteen months. Three years on hrt I can still function and have no pain at all. The fact you are in pain for a few days after is a red flag for me. Also, I have never read that estrogen or progesterone drops T levels. I'm so sorry you're experiencing this but I think you need to do some serious research. Best of luck....

      I'm almost embarrassed to report that my favorite trucks have been Toyota Tacoma pickups - I've owned two, both white! Although I did own a 67' Chevy Carryall once that was a gas guzzler but lots of fun to drive.  I bought it from a school system and it was school-bus yellow I'm surrounded by farmers who all have the latest pickups. I envy them all!   Gwen

      Good luck Amanda.   I had a friend for many years. As I changed he became very touchy and, particuarly,  toward the middle of last year, very trans and homo phobic. I think it was his other friends. He had worried about how other people would react with him from the very beginning (in fact has always been concerned at anything which could taint him as unusual). To me it seems like insecurety, but the break came when his other friends started winding him up, saying that we were an item. He finally snapped and lost his temper ridiculing the clothes I wore.   At that point I decided I had had enough and could not put up with the abuse any longer. I walked and have heard nothing from him since.   Tracy

      The little cars I have had had would be almost invisible next to these   I did like the look of a Dodge some time back, but totally impractical for me. Even the garage is too small for anything other than a car.   Lovely photo Charlize x
