I am 25 years old and for the past three years I have been losing an unhealthy amount of weight. Last summer I noticed that my butt was gone, my chest has shrunk from a C size to an A, and you can count every vertebra down my spine. I then began to buy body building supplements spending around $200 a month. My calorie intake is over 15,000 daily and I only have a bowel movement maybe 4 x a month. I have had every test under the sun, I think, but i still have no answers. I am not bulemic, annorexic, or depressed. i just want to know what is wrong with me. I have even been red flagged by three doctors because they say there is nothing they can do for me and they won't take demands from me to find a correct diagnosis. I am now starting to feel weak, tired all the time, dizzy, exhausted, and lethargic. I fear that no one is going to listen until it is too late. Just three years ago I weighed in at 165 lbs. but now at 6 foot 1 inch tall I am at a scary 98 lbs. Does anyone have any answers or suggestions? Please feel free to e-mail me at christian.andrea@att.net. Even my two daughters are starting to notice, and my oldest (age 5) told me that for halloween I could be a skeleton. I now am hurt and tired of everyone saying that I make myself sick, when I would love to be 165 lbs. again.
