Health Issues after Anorexia watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    Please keep anon.

    Despite overcoming anorexia roughly 5 years ago (with occasional relapses) I have suffered quite ill health which makes me question my ability to hold down a job, get full attendance at college etc.

    I get colds so easily, constantly have something wrong with my tummy, constant cough and get some kind of throat infection every 2 months or so.

    I have IBS as well which can get quite bad, I know this is probably down to wrecking my stomach by starving it.

    I'm also on the pill (might be significant?!)

    I am now at a healthy weight, nowhere near the 'underweight' mark of the BMI calculator (however flawed this is).

    Does anyone else suffer from the same experiences post-eating disorder (of any kind)?
