Anorexia and stomach distention

What is the best cure for a distended stomach and constipation? I am laxative dependent already, and my stomach is so swollen that I can barely eat, and I am trying to recover from anorexia. I have tried Gas X, enulose, Midol, water pills, diet pills.. I could go on forever. I'm desperate. I have gained 4 pounds in a few days, and I look pregnant. Any ideas are much appreciated. Thank you!!

As I am not a medical doctor, I would direct you to seek medical help immediately.  Although the discomfort is unbearable, your electrolytes could be off.  Also, you need medical attention to address your laxative dependency.  To learn more about eating disorders and treatment options, visit the bella vita website.  Best, Dr Patricia Pitts, PhD
