This may seem like a really stupid question. I have had bulimia for the last 12 years. I have made myself sick an average of 2 times a day.( never laxatives)  I have a hiatal hernia. Lately every time i eat i get very tired and very nauseous, and very bloated. During the day i can often get very weak  and get heart palpitations. I have a constant pain in my mid back. I have had a good week and have not made myself sick but i actually feel physically worse.  I have a BMI of 20.4. I am scared that my bulimia is killing me. Can i die from bulimia? what are the actual long term effects of what i'm doing??

You can absolutely die from Bulimia. It sounds like maybe you are trying to recover and if this is the case, seek the help of a counselor or doctor. They can give you the resources to get better and can give you medications to help your body cope. Best of luck!
