Conditions with symptom: 'binging on food'
Hello! In one of your shows i see a man who didnt want to swallowing big pieces of food, he just eat soft food, because one in his childhood a piece of food was stucked in his throat. Then he need to learn again how to eat and a psychologist helped him. This i am asking because here in Slovenia we have one boy who wont to swallow too and he just eat parental food but doctors here are telling, that they cant help him. He is so poor, because he have a lot of other anomalies and we must pushing him to eat. Parents dont know how to help him anymore and they are looking for a doctor who wants to help him, that he would be "normal" when he grows up. Thank you for answer, M
Within the last few months food has been getting stuck when I swallow. I now have to take a drink straight after I take my first bite of something then I frequently have to drink to help the food go down. My throat feels very dry hence food getting stuck. I have a mild cough which has been arround since this sensation starting. I have been referred to ENT but I am scared that he docor will have to look down my throat so I will probably cancel the appointment when it comes through. Should I just hope it goes away? I am a female, 36 years old.

Hello, Im eighteen and have had problems with food and weight for just over a year now. I was extremely low and food was my comfort, and for the last year I find myself eating loads of food in short spaces of time and making myself sick, I ither do this or dont eat atal. I saw a therapist for a while and thought I could do it alone, and its all come back, what should I do? I dont want to tell my parents and make them upset about it all again and I am so embarresed that its all come back. And im worried as next year im goign to university and shall be moving out of my home, help!?
GO BACK TO THE DOCTORS. i know it sucks having to admit that you're struggling and risk upsetting people but one thing i've noticed in everyone i know with eating disorders is that they've all got significantly worse the moment we left home. please go back to the doctors, a bit of upset and embarrassment is a lot better than a life of eating disorders.

What is it that you want someone else to do for you? I'm sorry if this sounds harsh but you are in control of this illness and you must take charge of alleviating your suffering. You have already pinpointed the problems right here in your comment: Weight, junk food and eating late at night. You owe it to yourself to stick with the solutions: losing weight and eating a healthy diet.
To whom this may concern, Ever since I had my appendix removed in 2002 due to appendicitis, every time I eat something greasy I get severe abdominal upset and diarrhoea. Bear in mind that I have not had any fatty food or greasy food since the start of the year. I avoid fast food places like they are the plague and yet 2 days ago my godson came home with KFC and gave me a piece and for the last two days I have been experiencing diarrhoea and stomach cramps whenever I lay down but when I'm sitting up I am perfectly fine. Please help me with any advice that you can offer and it will be greatly appreciated. Regards Matt

Im 16 years old and I'm just over 11stone, I don't know what the average weight is for my age but I'm not happy with the weight I am, when my parents aren't in the house I'm constantly eating food, and looking through cupboards to see what food I can find, I really want to stop doing this, so how can I overcome this problem?
i have the same problem and when im alone i rade the cupboards to see what i can find. I always feel fulfilled for about 5 mins and get to a low sraight after because im worried about my weight. I too am over 11 stone and im only 13. I find keeping my hands occupied prevents me from binging on food. i usually eat out of boredom and cleaning or drawing keeps me from doing it again. I hope this helps you as i know how horrible it is to feel this way.
Hi, I am 23, female and I have been bulimic for the past 9 years now, It started off as anorexia and I would throw up if I had eaten a square piece of chocolate, then the more I ate the more I threw up etc. I have hidden this all my life, there are periods of when its not so bad and periods of when it's terrible and for the past 2 years I have been a mess, hours and hours of binging and purging. My heartbeat has become very irregular and I get really bad chest pain where my heart is, my blood pressure is on the low side of normal and heart beat regular (after visit to GP), I don't know whether the two are related but I am becoming worried now, I'm not in a good place right now and I know that triggers it, but even when I've been happy I still do, just not to as much extent. I want to recover I just don't know where to begin.
Hi Alessandra, I am having the same problem, but less strong I have had it for about a year now, but I think going to a nutritionist helps a lot. Getting into sports and taking proteins and vitamins produce endorphins that make us happier therefore we eat less out of stress and anxiety and purge less. Also finding other hobbies help me a lot. If I think of chocolate and I know I will throw it up afterwards I take my guitar and play until I forget. It doesn't work all the time and I still have this stupid bulimia ))': that's how I came on this website because I want to get rid of it too but start off with things like this they may help!
