Eating Disorders Expert
I am very relieved to hear that you are going to consult with a psychologist, as I suspect that you are going to require quite a detailed assessment to get to the root of your physiological problems. I am not convinced that you have an eating disorder, but I am not dismissing this. However, you have a history of anxiety and then you experienced an armed robbery, only exacerbating your panic attacks. So, your anxiety disorder is possibly a central issue here, and this might be having some physiological impact on you. Again, it might be the meds that are fully or partly accounting for your nausea and reflux. This is a tricky one. I suggest you see the psychologist and also consult with a psychiatrist to have your medication thoroughly assessed. Not only do you need the right meds for your anxiety, but you want to avoid side effects like increased appetite, nausea or insomnia. I hope this helps.
