Hello, I was wondering how many of the people here went on to later develop stomach and digestive disorders?

I have severe acid stomach, and sometimes my food won't digest and will just sit there. On days where it doesn't digest, I'll often puke it up. Sometimes I puke up just acid... I feel super sick all the time even with antacids and prescription acid reducers

i have pretty serious gastroparesis and will eventually require a feeding tube but i think it's more likely due to my ehlers-danlos syndrome, and then worsened by ED

  • Winterfae and si-starke like this

lots of medical issues too ehlers-danlos syndrome, gastroparesis, severe hypoglycemia, etc .. Cw: 59.8kgs and losing quickly ..stuck bc i want to show myself and the GI/dietitian that i am really trying to have as much of an intake as i can, but regardless bc of my gastroparesis severity i'm unable to have barely anything so either way i'm losing weight rapidly, right now i'm more just watching it unfold on the scale and am going to workout again (try to) so i'm not skinny fat completely Hw: 100kgs+ Lw: i was in hospital and couldn't stand without passing out, like 50-52kgs (not low but medically compromised) .. Eating disorders aren't weight disorders, they're mental disorders (try to remind myself of this everytime I see the number on the scale) Ugh have a GW again but at least it's not too low GW: 45.8kgs...send me a DM! desperate for socializing and friends in general lol

I have severe gerd too, I am handsfree, I can bring up most food and even water. I don't use it to purge tho I usually swallow back. 

I got gastritis and went to the doctor and had it fixed this summer.

I also have severe Gastroporeisis and am waiting to get a PegTube put in to alleviate my symptoms (I have to eat a really restricted diet to avoid bowel obstructions)
I have had GERD for eons, and it got so much worse when I was purging (my top stomach sphincter no longer closes properly) but the PPIs they usually put people on affect my ability to absorb my other meds (they block stomach acid which I need to break down the other pills I take) so I manage my GERD via diet so I stay away from the foods that set me off and I sleep on an incline to avoid choking on acid in my sleep…
I also have narcotic bowel syndrome from my heroin use and now that I am on high dose fentanyl for palliative care (chronic pain from prolonged starvation and the tissue damage that the starvation caused) I have to give myself enemas every three days or else I could end up in the hospital. I am praying I won’t eventually end up with a colostomy bag. A lot of my bowel issues also are a result of long term laxative abuse when I was younger.

That’s the summary of what years and years of living with an ED does to the body. There is more but I don’t want to depress you further!
I cope the best I can. All things considered, I am doing pretty well and am in good spirits. I still have a few dishes I can eat and really enjoy because I genuinely LOVE food, which is the irony of this whole fucked up situation lol.

I hope you find some relief soon. Feel free to reach out for support anytime ❤️

I came, I saw, I tried to leave
but life just wasn’t done with me
So I waved hospice goodbye, took Ana’s hand in mine and begged
“Peace until the end?”
And with wry reply she sighed
“I’ll do my best my friend…”
So we live
side by side
Until it’s our turn to drift away
on the gentle tide

I have gastroparesis, but I think it was caused by my abdominal surgeries. I had severe constipation my entire life that resulted in having to have my colon removed at age 25.

IBS here... it makes eating even more difficult as I get so bad stomach pain from some specific foods. The bloating too is absolutely terrible. Also very bad constipation, I poop once a week.


NOTE: I started to have all these symptoms AFTER I recovered; I was eating around 2500-3000 calories a day, 6 meals a day, and was weight restored and did some sports too (running and gym), so the symptoms aren't at least ONLY because of ED. They haven't gone worse once I relapsed, they are pretty similar still. But of course ED doesn't make them any better.

I have visited the doctor / gastroenterology and he also thought that it is IBS.

I take six prescription pills a day for mine - pantoprazole which is an acid reducer I take once in the morning and once at night and Metclopramide which I take four times a day to relax my esophagus and stop acid from coming up.  Do they work?  Not really sometimes when I lay down after I've eaten I get bad acid reflux.  Is this due to my eating disorder?  One doctor told me that type 1 diabetes gives you nerve damage in your stomach.

idk what I specifically have but I know I have IBS for sure. my stomach hurts so bad eating dairy and anything with oil or processed a lot and I have stomach issues a day or so later if I don't purge it. also lots of fibrous veggies and fruits affect my stomach which sucks. I can never poop. like ever, unless I take lax. and also I get acid reflux sometimes and my mouth will taste like metal idk.. 


but before my ed my stomach was like iron and I could eat a lot and anything I wanted, but now even a normal sized meal will tip off everything if I don't purge. 


I feel lucky though that I don't have anything worse like others on here because of all the hell ive put my body through.

Gastroparesis and gastritis over here. I've had stomach issues for the past 2 years or so but only got diagnosed this summer. My stomach burns every day, often regardless of what I eat

There is no other side, Bojack.

I feel you! I have slow digestions all the time, stomach ache and exaggerated abdominal bloating whenever I eat regardless of what I eat. Food just makes me sick.

IBS-C and IBS-D never consistent enough and stomach discomfort. If I eat it digests too fast or not fast enough, constant bloat.
