hi. im eighteen years old and ive been bulimic since march? and i didnt have much problem until about a week ago. i mean, being bulimic itself is bad enough but since last week ive been having a sharp pain around my right chest area? like almost on the side, around the bottom of my right breast and i cant think of anything else that couldve caused it. i was sick for about a month and i was coughing a LOT but i got a lot better about a week ago. that could be it tho.. but ive also been purging a lot lately.. it randomly hurts. especially when i was laying on my stomach, it hurt like a motherrrr every time i tried to move a little. i dont smoke anything but i drink about every 2 weeks. im scared to go to a hospital because im scared that my mom would find out about my bulimia.. i know its really bad and i need to stop and i will. but my question is, could this pain be caused by my bulimia? could it be a rib fracture?(also because i knew a friend who got a rib fracture from coughing a lot when she had bronchitis) thank you!
