Over Eating - November 2nd 2013, 05:13 PM

Is it true that there is an eating disorder for compulsive over eating? My mom says there is and she is worried about me. SO yeah.

Remember that you cannot use your mother or Wikipedia to self-diagnose yourself; you have to see a doctor or a psychologist in order to be diagnosed with an eating disorder. If you are worried that you may be showing ED symptoms, I'd recommend that you talk to a professional. Good luck. <3

I have the same disorder. Though, I'm not sure if it's medicine related or if I actually have the chemical imbalance in my stomach/brain that tells me I need to eat more when I don't really have to.

Traci is right, you're best off asking a doctor. If you take any medication, ask if there are side effects that cause an increase in appetite.
