your back pain may be due to strain or poor posture

if you are obese try to put down your weight
if possible try to take physiotherapy for that
try to maintain good posture during working hours
take small breaks after long duration of sitting or standing
use thin pillow during sleeping
do yoga and back strengthening exercises
avoid stress. take good sleep
if the pain is severe consult the specialist

Hi Sabrina,

Thanks for posting your query.

I understand your concern.

Bulimia nervosa is a psychological disorder similar to addiction to drugs. It is estimated to effect between 3% of all U.S women has this disorder. There is no definite known cause for this. I think you have to undergo a complete psychiatric analysis and general health check up for this.A antidepressant drug may be helpful. Upper back pain may be due to acidity or over weight. Change your dietary habits drink more water, consume more green leafy vegetables and fiber. Change your life style. Do Yoga and Meditation it may help.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be avilable for your follow up queries, if any.

Wishing you good health.
