Question: Eating Disorder

 Amm - Mon Jun 28, 2004 2:06 pm

Just a question.
I have had an eating disorder for quite some time now. I ti prob what one would call bulemia. I don't binge I just purge what I eat. It is not done on a daily basis. This is the stupid question, I am going on a trip in a few weeks. I would like to go on rollercoasters, I am at risk because of the adreniline rush to my heart or anything. I have never been hospitalized for this problem.

Thank you

User avatar Dear Amm,

You are 25 years old, and if you are a healthy 25 years old except for the eating disorder, and you don't have a history of heart disease, then, enjoy the roller coasters.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
