Question: Bulimic seeks help - do I need to worry?

jamiekatied - Sat Nov 20, 2004 2:03 am

I'm a 25 year old bulimic working through bulimia with therapist and medication but still purging about 2-3 times a week. Recently I've been getting dull head aches at the top of my scalp after purging which has never happened before. Do I need to be concerned or see a doctor with any urgency? Headache goes away within a few hours and no other symptoms.

Since how long have you been having these Headaches, and how often a day does it come by? Or does it happen only associated with purging? Have you discussed regarding it with your care provider? Do you have problems with vision or sinus?
