User :   Hi, I am worried about my health a little, it is probably nothing but I just would like some advice. I'm not underweight (170cm, 61kgs & female) but I do follow a strict diet and aim to not eat more than 500 calories a day, and the calories I eat have to be good calories (as in fruit and veg). A few weeks ago I started taking laxatives as I couldnt go to the bathroom, and I have kept taking 2 or 3 every night. The last few days I havn't been feeling well and sometimes I can't keep food down. Tonight I ate some soup and I felt really unwell and had to throw it up. I used to make myself vomit but I never do anymore (except from tonight where I had to as I felt so unwell). I am also under alot of stress at the moment and have experienced panic attacks before, maybe that is causing my stomach upset too? Please can you reply. Thank you.
