Hi guys,firstly apologies if this turns into a long thread,I jsut want to make sure I get everything across...
For the last 6 months or so I have been steadily gaining weight for what appears to be no reason at all.I eat a fairly healthy diet of between 800-1000 cals each day,I know the calorie content of every food and write down everything I eat and drink so know no extras are getting in.I exercise regularly and have a fairly active job.
I had severe anorexia for a long time but before the weight started piling on I was maintaining my weight at a BMI of 17.I have now gained 1 1/2 stone and it doesn't seem like it is stopping.I have had my thyroid tested which apparantley was fine and all 3 GP's at my surgery are treating me like a hypochondriac. I have tried eating more to speed up my metabolism and then eating less to starve myself both to no effect and i am really at my wits end as to what to do and extremely distressed at the weight gain.
Also for the last 2 weeks i have been having extreme stomach pains which I can't find any correlation in.The pain is very low down on my right side and so bad when they come that I can't walk,they are only relieved by lying down on my side for a long time.At the same time I feel sick and dizzy and my stomach is very bloated and hard.
Can anyone give me any advice as to where I should go next or what might be going on??Thanks for any replies in advance!
