migraines - February 1st 2011, 01:13 AM

So I've struggled with both anorexia and bulimia and then i started getting migraines every day. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it normal? Should I be worried? its been happening for almost a year.

Hey there, sorry for the late reply.

This has happened to me before. And it absolutely sucks. When I had an ED, I would constantly get migraines. This is because your body is trying to send you a message. Migraines are caused by lack of nutrition, and other things. But in your case, it's because your body isn't getting what it needs. Also, stress is a factor as well.

Here is a website to back up what I said.

Hey there,

While struggling with my own Eating disorder I have had to deal with things such as migraines. There are a number of reasons that an Eating disorder could lead to migraines one of those reasons being a lack of proper nutrition to the body. It is really important that you try to get your eating back on track. The more you struggle with the eating the more medical complications you could face. I would also suggest that you look into talking to a doctor about the things that are going on with you. If you can get support for your eating disorder you can slowly work on overcoming it.

I really hope this helps and if you need anything feel free to pm me.

Jenna
