    Anorexia - basically you think you are fat, and stop eating. even if the person is skin and bones, they'll still think they are fat.

    Bulimia - you eat food then go to the bathroom and purge. this way people don't know you have an eating disorder.

    Hi, I'm new around here.

    What is anorexia nervosa?
    A person with anorexia nervosa has an intense fear of gaining weight. Someone with anorexia thinks about food a lot and limits the food she or he eats, even though she or he is too thin. Anorexia is more than just a problem with food. It's a way of using food or starving oneself to feel more in control of life and to ease tension, anger, and anxiety. Most people with anorexia are female.
    An anorexic:
    has a low body weight for her or his height
    resists keeping a normal body weight
    has an intense fear of gaining weight
    thinks she or he is fat even when very thin
    misses three (menstrual) periods in a row―for girls/women who have started having their periods

    Bulimia is an eating disorder. Someone with bulimia might binge on food and then vomit (also called purge) in a cycle of binging and purging. Binge eating refers to quickly eating large amounts of food over short periods of time. Purging involves forced vomiting, laxative use, excessive exercise, or fasting in an attempt to lose weight that might be gained from eating food or binging.

    The strict medical definition used by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV) requires 2 binge-eating episodes a week for at least 3 months to make the diagnosis, but it's likely that some people with symptoms of bulimia may not fit these exact criteria.

    hello, Shawn, nice to meet you. But I advise you not to ask for medical help on a forum. While I'm sure we all mean well, the BEST place to go is to your doctor: he's the professional, not us. Our info might not always be entirely factual or accurate, so we're a dubious source for personal probelms. I hope your legs feel better! :-D
