Hi I really recommend you to read some informations about your illness and the real side effects of it ,not nów my Love in the future .i work in the Ward Where poor girls are suffering and how badly and seriously their organs are damaged .its one of the worst illness I hope you get strong and will fight it I wish you all best
If you know a lot that’s good then .regarding pain it’s very common if you use laxatives try to drink mint tea twice a day regularly you should feel difrences in a while 😊
As the other poster said, you will be in pain through drug abuse (which this is). You will have worn away your stomach lining which is what is causing the pain. Are you feeling pain anywhere else e.g. in your intestines or around your kidneys? if so, then you should seek medical help urgently as this could be a sign of organ failure.
I'm not going to lecture you about laxative risks because you know this already, but when you are ready to make a change I would think about working with a dietitian to reduce your laxatives gradually. You shouldn't stop suddenly on these (same with most drugs).
Remember there is lots of support out there. Beat, the UK's eating disorder, run a free and confidential helpline, which is open 3pm - 10pm every day, as well as various online support groups, 1-2-1 chat and twitter support.
Yeh. Pain can be horrible when it's not managed well.
I am mightily surprised that they haven't at the very least booked you in for blood tests. It's an easy thing to do to rule out anything sinister particularly with your health issues.
I, personally, would be worried about persistent pain. Pain is extremely rarely not caused by something and to manage you (and they) obviously need to know the cause. The best thing is to make a GP appointment (maybe ask for someone different?) and say you're worried and suggest blood tests. Presumably they know about the eating disorder?
There are some helpful resources on things to say in a GP consultation regarding your eating disorder available freely on the Beat website so you might find that helpful.
You will know in yourself what is regular bad pain and what is severe. If the pain worsens to what is normal for you, you should go to A & E.
