Quick Question. - August 16th 2013, 11:54 PM

Quick question.

So I was down at a low weight before and was referred to an eating disorder specialist and had my weight watched by a doctor and what not. My weight isn't perfect yet but I have gained some (not sure how much because it's a blind weight, my specialist just said that I wasn't at my lowest weight). I never got an official, written out on paper, diagnosis. In order to get into inpatient, I need one. My specialist gave me some papers to take to my doctor and get him to sign them. I don't even know if I can get one though? I can't really be classified anorexic because my weight isn't low anymore. And also that fact that I haven't had my period - at all. So we don't know if my weight was stopping it or not. Would I be diagnosed EDNOS? Or just not diagnosed at all? Is it possible to just diagnose someone just with "eating disorder" , whether it is specified or not?

Only you have the power to say,
"This is not how my story will end"

I'm hoping someone else will come along and possibly give a little more input here but from what I understand it probably would be EDNOS. Although I'm not a doctor and can't technically diagnosis you with anything it probably would end up being that. Although you might still be diagnosed with anorexia even though you have gained some weight back. I hope I've given you a little help and I hope things continue to get better for you!

You could still be diagnosed as Anorexic. But they may give you an EDNOS diagnosis. Sorry I can't be much help, I'm not really in the position to say since I don't have any experience with ED diagnosis. Could you explain the situation to your doctor? Good luck with this! Hope it works out.
