Eating disorders: Your condition is affecting your body. Body chemistry and digestive patterns change, as does mood. Your teeth will get damaged. This all puts you at high risk for medical problems. Hopefully your EKG came out ok but please do not think that you are in the clear. You need treatment ASAP. Please see a mental health pro who specializes in eating disorders.
