Is it possible to get diarrhea from anorexia? I was curious because no matter what i eat, without taking, Loperamide Hydrochloride (anti-diarrheal medication), i can't seem to fight the diarrhea. I used to be anorexic and i think thats a factor as to why i have diarrhea nearly everyday without the pills. Also, is it possible to get diarrhea from anxiety?
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.
