I have an eating disorder & the specialist i'm seeing

I have an eating disorder & the specialist i'm seeing had me track orthostatic vitals. Upon standing, my pulse raises around 20-30BPM & my blood pressure is on the lower end. She said that if my heart rate continues to rise (since it was normal a few weeks ago and raised now) that I need to go to clinic/hospital to get it checked since I dont have insurance/GP. Is that something needing to get checked out? I do get dizzy or lightheaded upon standing

Is this going to become a full blown eating disorder and should I tell my doctor? I m 17 years old and about 5 3-5 5 and quite fat, about 140 pounds I admit I have anorexic tendencies. For days I would starve until it hurt and eat less (about 500 calories and under) when I decided to. Sometimes I would eat normally until this feeling took hold of me and I start repeating again but maybe for longer. However some of the weight would barely shift and I will start eating again but not as much like before. I take ephedrine tablets to aid with the weight loss and constantly see myself as fat. I m thinking that when I go to the doctor I should tell her whats going on because no one knows except my twin and she hasn t told anyone. My mom doesn t know either. I feel like I want to tell her but I don t because she ll make me stop and I secretly love the feeling of doing this to myself, sometimes I smile just thinking about what I m doing and going to achieve. I also tend to go on pro-ana sites to make me feel better about what I m doing. And for some strange reason I want to be extremely skinny when I do go to see her (doctor) so that when she sees me I ll be nice and thin. I really don t know what s going on. Can someone give me an insight into what I m doing to myself and maybe if there s a name for it since its not anorexia and if I should speak to my doctor. All answers greatly appreciated.

I have 21 year old daughter 5 8 and 110 lbs. She has adopted a vegan diet due to lactose intolerance, egg allergy, and apple allergy. She doesn t want to eat meat due to the vegan reasoning. I feel she is emaciated, her sacrum and shoulder joints are skin and bones, and she has no fullness in her lips. She refuses to see herself as too skinny and continues to count calories for the wrong reasons in my view; I believe she should count to insure enough, she focuses on less. I believe this is bad for her heart as well as everything else. She plans to begin interviewing for Law School this spring. She is a straight A student, perfectionist, driven, and exceedingly difficult for me to communicate with. She does eat, but not enough. Any ideas?
