Scared

I'm 40 & have alwats been the type to eat & not gain weight.
However,I do eat except for times when i get nervous & stressed then I do not want to eat at all.
I can go for many hours like this until I start getting the symptoms of hypoglycemia,you know,
sweating,shaking,weakness, or just feel hungry.THEN I will eat. And I am losing weight. i'm scared.
So I am concerned....Does this mean I am turning into an anorexic? Is this how it starts?
Thank you.

Hi Pat,
I did visit the site & took the survey twice but as yet not recieved the results.
I have OCD and I lost my mother almost 2 years ago,also other things I am going through that are extremely stressful, could these factors contribute to becoming anorexic also?
Could you refer me to an eating disorder specialists in my area?
Thank you.

Dear ny77,

I am sorry to hear you have not received the results of your survey.  I will get it resolved.  Thank you for bringing this to my attention.  I’m sorry to hear about the death of your mother.  Her death, OCD and stressful events all can contribute to anorexia.  I would be happy to refer you to an eating disorder specialist in your area.  Email me directly with your town, state, country, I will try to assist you.  My email address is ***@****.

Best,

Dear ny77,

Your inconsistent eating triggered by anxiety and stress can be one cause that precipitates anorexia.  Other possible causes could be a loss of a loved one relationally or by death, physical illness, life transition (e.g., going away to college), sport involvement which focuses on physical appearance or emotional, physical or sexual abuse.  

Visit our website.  Take our eating disorder survey and learn more about anorexia.  If you are in any doubt, seek a eating disorder specialist in your area for a consultation.

Best,

Dr. Pitts
