Dizziness - December 29th 2014, 04:40 PM


So when I don't eat, I obviously get the dizziness when I stand up, walking and I feel faint however when I do eat or even binge I still get dizzy. Over Christmas due to family I've had to eat normally and slightly healthily but I still get really really dizzy when I stand up to the point where I fall over and I'm just wondering whether this is just something my ED had caused for good or something else?

I'm gonna guess that the reason it perseveres even when you're eating normally may just be because it might take a period of sustained healthy eating before it goes away. But, I'm just guessing here- I really don't know, and it sounds like you have quite bad dizziness and it could be caused by a number of causes, ED maybe, possibly other things. Definitely see a doctor though- you don't need to mention the ED, just see what they suggest. Good luck <3

Hey there,

The best advice I can give you is to go to the doctor and let them know what is going on. Explain to them that you are struggling with an ED so they are fully aware of your health conditions. From there they will be able to help figure out what is going on and make sure you are keeping healthy.

I've had the same experience myself, I passed out on xmas eve even though I had been eating a lot more regularly and steadily,
personally I think it's when the vomiting and lack of nutrition catches up to me, as now my light headed-ness has seemed to vanish after about 2 weeks, this is no vomiting and a fairly normal eating pattern for about 14 days. If the symptoms hadn't gone away I would have been very concerned and asked to see a doctor.

just keep track of it, lets say if it persists in a way that inconveniences you, stops or prevents you from doing what you want to do, for more than 2 weeks see a doctor. find one you like that you feel comfortable talking to, ask for disclosure and tell them what you are comfortable sharing.

I agree with what everyone else is saying. I would definitely see a doctor as it could be ED related, but if you are still experiencing dizziness even after eating, then it could be something else.
