Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have had a loss of appetite and a feeling of nausea after eating for a while now. I also see myself as fat although I have been told I am not. I used to lower the amount of food I ate so that I would not put on weight. I only ate dinner as a way of getting thinner. Does this make me anorexic?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You seem to be suffering from anorexia nervosa as you have been eating less so as not to gain weight, in spite of being told that you are not fat. It is a type of a psychiatric disorder. So, I suggest you consult a psychiatrist regarding this.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
