I don't know if I have an eatting disorder or not!


Q: Hi I just turned 18, I weight 40.7kg, I am 154cm in height and my BMI is 17.2. Over the last year I have dropped off the weight so fast that friends and family were getting worried. At first I wanted to losse 2kg or so but it just kept going down without my trying. A girl in my grade had anorexia and I defently dont want to go through that, but the thing is I dont really know if im going through it already. I get really stressed out that I know what Im doing to my body but I still dont do anything! I can go a couple days without eatting, and when i do its only a couple bites and im full! I have had a few problems with my period, just being irregular and very odd, and i get bad cramps! I have not muscel left in my body, before i lost weight i was pretty toned! I get dizzy and sick most days. Im defently not pregnate. But the doc i go to doesnt really do anything and I feel like I may need help to get me eatting again cause I dont seem to eat, because I dont really feel hungry and when I do I look in the fridge and nothing seems to appitite me. Please Let me know your thoughts!
